Download of the Day: Stardock Fences 0.96

The best way to clean up desktop clutter
By Steve Dougherty from Mar 2, 2009 @ 21:38 CST

Our Download of the Day today is Stardock Fences 0.96.


Fences™ is a program that helps you organize your desktop and can hide your icons when they're not in use. A "Fence", a term coined by this program, is an icon group on your desktop. Fences is an add-on to your desktop, not a replacement.


Rope off your desktop
Fences allows you to create shaded areas on your desktop that you can place icons in. You can label them however you wish, and move/resize them anywhere on the desktop. Pre-included layouts help speed the process for new users.


See your wallpaper again! Quickly hide & show all your icons with an easy double-click
Double click blank space on your desktop, and all your icons will fade out. Double click again, and they'll return. We think this feature is so useful, we're applying for a patent on it. And with the upcoming Fences FeaturePack / included in the community preview, you can even pick icons and individual Fences to exclude.


SmartFences, snapshots, skinning, automatic scaling (for screen size changes), and more
Fences is a great tool to have - and with Fences Pro FeaturePack, it'll be even better.
The Fences FeaturePack is not yet available, but sign up here to be notified when it is.
