Fences is a program that helps you organize your desktop. It can hide icons when they are not in use as well as make it easy to place icons into moveable groups called fences.


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.


Rope off Your Desktop

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

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.

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.
