Fences 2.0 is currently in BETA and you're invited to try it!

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Fences is a program that helps you organize your desktop. Place icons into moveable groups called “fences” and hide icons when they are not in use.


Fence off Your Desktop

Create shaded areas called “fences” on your desktop in which you can place and organize icons.

Automatically Arrange Your Desktop

Define rules for where your icons are placed and how they are arranged. When a new icon gets added, from an installer for instance, it will be automatically added to your preferred fence.

Keep Your Desktop Clean

Double-click blank space on your desktop and all of your icons will fade out. Double-click again and they will return.


Make Your Desktop a Portal to Your Files

Expose folders containing documents or pictures onto your desktop in fenced areas making them easy to access.

Multiple Desktop Pages

You can now have multiple pages of fences on your desktop. To flip a page, just take your mouse cursor to the edge of your screen and click and drag a new page of fences onto your desktop.

Customize Appearance

Fences 2.0 BETA brings additional customization options for controlling per fences views, custom scroll bars and labels.

I am running XP SP 3. This is a work machine, so I can't update the OS...
