I used to just use a windows toolbar (like the Quick Launch Bar) that I docked to the left side of the screen. But for some wacky, unknown, crappy reason Vista wont let you get a custom toolbar off the start menu. Lame.

where the person found the solution we've (well, me and this guy
at the very least) been looking for.
Just drag the folder to the side of the screen... SO SIMPLE!
