If necessary, right-click on the desktop (or panel) and select "Unlock 
Widgets". Right-click on the desktop and select "Add Panel". A small 
panel should appear at the upper left corner. Left-click on that panel 
and move the "Screen Edge" button to the side of the screen. Between the 
vertical bar with the buttons "Screen Edge", "Width", etc. and the panel 
at the side of the screen there are two sliders. Move the sliders to set 
the panel hight. Finally click somewhere on the desktop and you should 
have an empty panel on the side of the desktop. You can now move 
application icons from the K-menu to the new panel. When done, you can 
right-click on the desktop (or panel) and select "Lock Widgets".
