Having used XP for something like a decade, while I much appreciate almost everything about Windows 7, it's been hard to let go of the cascading menus from the start menu for finding my commonly used applications. I've been using this little app called 7stacks for a while, which is very close, but it seems to be not quite up to snuff with Windows 7 in that it sometimes lags for a while before the menus will pop up. It's pretty good but can be annoying sometimes.
I recently realized that I can get much the same thing by putting shortcuts in folders on my desktop, and activating the "Desktop" toolbar.
This is great, except that I would really much prefer the "Desktop >>" link be at the left, where the other "quick launch" icons are. It's mostly annoying because when the cascading menus pop up, the first one is to the right, then successive ones must go to the left, because there's no room to the right. And besides I'm just used to launching stuff from the lower left!
Is there any way to change the location of these "toolbars"?
