How to Disable Fences?

Friday, March 9, 2018 by ALMonty | Discussion: Fences

How do I disable Fences? I went to the Task Manager in the startup I disabled fences restarted and it was still there and still disabled in Task Manager. I used the Deactive within Fences and all it did was asked me for my password and was still on.

I have a problem when downloading or saving picture files from the internet they don't go to my Primary monitor they go to the Second monitor. YES I checked the settings of which is the Primary and Secondary. I would like to know if Fences has anything to do with it. But I can't find a way to shut Fences off without uninstalling it.

It does this with IE, Edge and Chrome.

Al all I do is right click on a fence and click "Configure Fences". When the window opens it opens under the "home" menu. I go to the bottom of the page and just uncheck "Enable Fences"

When I want it back I just right click on the desktop and on the menu click Enable Fences.

open fences configuration, under the home tab there's an option to enable/disable

Thanks guys. I didn't see it because the Fences window didn't open fully. I had to scroll down to see it.

Turning off Fences let's my downloads go to my Primary monitor. I don't have any Fences on the Second monitor.

Should I have the box checked for "When I plug in a new primary monitor, move the icons to it"?

Nevermind that didn't work "When I plug in a new primary monitor, move the icons to it" the downloads still move to the second monitor.

Island Dog I already read that. From what I found it doesn't have anything to do with Fences. Thanks anyway.
