Disclosed is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) toolbar which is dockable but disconnected from a specific application: a Meta-Toolbar. The Meta-Toolbar will contain, as icons or text menus, common application operations. The host computer's underlying windowing system interprets a user's click on a toolbar operation in the context of the user's current application window focus.
