    So the topic title is pretty self-explanatory what I want to do is drag a folder to the side of the screen and make a folder out of it. This was possible in XP and in Vista I think but I can't do it in 7. Any way to do it,native or via program ?

    Should be pretty straight forward and very similar to the way you've done it before.
    Create the folder on you desktop, then right click on an empty spot on the taskbar, choose toolbars, then new tool bar, then browse to the folder on your desktop.

    yes but I want to put the folder not on the bottom, where the windows taskbar is, but on the SIDE of the screen. Any way to do that ?

    I have a better suggestion for you, download and setup objectdock, by stardock. This is the best program i have found to work with windows. Give it a try, and let us know what you think.
