What is TaskMenuBar?

TaskMenuBar is a control panel that enables you to pin applications to the top menubar in Mac OS (7, 8 and 9).  Clicking any of those apps will switch them to foreground.  There is also an option to auto-hide any other app when you switch to another one.  TaskMenuBar also lets you drag and drop files onto those application icons in the menubar to easily open them using the app you want.  By sitting in the unused space in the menu bar at the top instead of a window, TaskMenuBar is always visible and handy.  By clicking on the Mac OS icon, a dropdown menu appears allowing you to quickly list and browse all attached drives and subfolders, which is quite useful and efficient.
