Fences is a program that you use to help you organize the icons on your desktop. Not just by moving them around but by hiding them when they are not in use. Note this is not a repeat of the hide unused icons feature of Windows XP.

A Fence is an icon manager for your desktop. It is an add-on to your desktop, not a replacement. By using Fences, you can clean your desktop by creating shaded areas. The Fence becomes a movable and sizable containers for your icons. If you double click the blank spaces on your desktop all of your Fences will fade out, and back.



What can you do with Fences?

Rope off your desktop -Fences allows you to create shaded areas on your desktop that you can place icons in. You can label them however you wish, and move/resize them anywhere on the desktop. Pre-included layouts help speed the process for new users.
