The deskbar is a new panel applet that was introduced in GNOME 2.14.
For more details on what it is, have a look at the release notes:
(about 1/3rd of the way down the page)

To invoke the deskbar, you have to have the applet on a panel.  You can
put it on a panel by right-clicking on the panel and selecting "add to
panel..." and choosing it from the list of applets.  This will put a
text entry on the panel.

To invoke the deskbar, either click on the text entry and start typing
or (from anywhere on the desktop) use the keys "alt - F3", which will
focus the deskbar entry where you can start typing.

Hope this helps
