First, create a folder or folders with your most used icons in them. You should then name your folders according to the subject or grouping of the icons within. Save these folders somewhere that you don't go very often (not on your desktop).
Next, right-click on your Taskbar and make sure it is unlocked. Right-click again and select Toolbars►New Toolbars. Find your icon folder(s) and select it.
Now, when you need to open a file or application, you can select the Toolbar for the subject that you want and then select the icon of the program you want to open.
