Plymouth, MI. – January 5, 2017 – Stardock is collaborating with Dell to offer an exclusive version of their popular desktop organization product, Fences, at CES 2017 for the new Dell Canvas. This pairing creates a one-of-a-kind experience for users that clears desktop distractions from Canvas’ 27-inch QHD Adobe RGB display, offering a clutter-free workspace for creating.

"We are excited to be a part of this new collaboration product for Dell," said Chris Kowal, VP Business Development, Stardock. "Fences will make it possible for users to hide and organize all of their desktop icons, which will give them more creative space to work on."

Stardock’s Fences tucks files and folders away in plain sight within designated portals while also providing the functionality of pulling specific content into the creative workspace. Based on preference rules, users can customize how icons are viewed and where files originate from.

Over 5 million users around the world rely on Fences every day to keep their PC desktops organized for quick and easy access to the programs and files they use most. The new Fences v3.0 features places frequently used folders visible and organized on the desktop by creating a fence from any folder. Buy Fences for your PC today.

Fences will be featured on the Canvas product at CES 2017, which is hosted January 5-8 in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Attendees of the show will see the integration of Stardock’s custom Fences with Dell’s Canvas firsthand at the Venetian Palazzo Hospitality Suites.

Does this mean that Fences will be bundled with a new PC like the many other trial offer software products that come pre-loaded on a Dell?

One of the first things I do when I get a new PC is to delete all the trial software without bothering to look at any of them. I suspect other people do that as well.

will we have to purchase 3.0 when it comes or will we get the upgrade to 3.0 for free if we already own it?

I generally do that with 'shop boughts'... not that I've purchased one in a while.  Except for laptops and Windows tablets, I prefer to build my own.  However, with my last 'shop bought', a HP 2-in-1, I did check out the bundled software to see if there was anything useful, and I'm glad I did.  It came with a full version of Cyberlink's DVD and video creation/editing suite.  I use some of the tools within that suite, if not all at various times.

Anyway, I do not think Fences will be a trial version on the Dell PC.  I could be wrong, but the way I read it is that this particular version of Fences is a full version and part of a promotional thing between Dell and Stardock.  Well I'd like to think so... I hate bundled trial-ware with strictly limited editions cluttering up a new PC.
