Fences is a free application to help you rein in the clutter on your computer’s desktop. Rather than just leaving you to your own devices in terms of dumping file and applications willy-nilly across your Windows desktop, Fences helps you to organize these files/shortcuts in ways that make sense to you.
Fences allows you to create shaded areas on your desktop that you can place icons in. Once you’ve fenced-in a pile of icons, you can now resize and move them all as a unit. By grouping related items together, you can work faster and smarter. Group them together by file type, or keep all the pieces of a project together.
And, with a quick click of the mouse, you can make your fenced-in apps and documents disappear from your desktop to appreciate your beautiful wallpaper.
