    Prior to my computer crash/recovery, I had a MS Office application docking
    bar on my desktop where I could drag and drop shortcuts to a variety of
    applications thereby reducing the clutter on my desktop while giving me easy
    access to those apps I used most frequently.

    I would like to recover that if possible

    Are you using WindowsXP? If so then you need to get your
    QuickLaunch icons on your taskbar. To do this you need to
    right-Click on your taskbar and then select Properties. Now you
    will get a window opening with Taskbar as your chosen tab. On
    that window you will see 5 check boxes of which one is called
    "Show Quick Launch". Check this and click OK and you will get the
    M$ icons but now you can drag & Drop new ones on this.

    if you r-click on the Taskbar you will see "Toolbars", you may select
    from premade or "roll your own".
