Since windows 98 and up to Vista I have been able to create a taskbar at the left side of the screen. By dragging the my computer icon on the desktop off the screen to the left a taskbar would pop out comtaining the contents of the my computer icon. I could also add the desktop to the panel. Then make the panel hide until bringing the mouse pointer to the left when it would pop out. I could then hide my desktop and have no icons on the desktop. I liked this feature very much but I can't make this happen in Windows 7. Is this feature completely gone or is there a way to have it back?
