Corral your desktop icons with “Fences”

Stardock Fences

Stardock, a leading developer of software that enhances the look, feel and function of Microsoft Windows, has a new product in the works called “Fences”. Fences is a program launcher that helps you organize your desktop, and can hide your icons when they’re not in use. Fences is a one-of-a-kind program, allowing you to draw labeled shaded areas on your desktop, which become movable & resizable containers for your desktop icons. Fences is FREE for personal use; however, I want to point out that “Fences” is currently in beta (has been released to users for software testing before its official release). I have been an advocate and user of the Stardock products (e.g. Objectdock) and can attest to the quality and reliability of their products.

Stardock’s New “Fences” Application Solves Desktop Clutter Problems, Organizes the Desktop

PLYMOUTH, MI (FEBRUARY 4, 2009) – Stardock launched its most innovative desktop utility application since the popular WindowBlinds today – Stardock Fences for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. The free application from Stardock clears desktop clutter and provides consistency and organization for groups of files on the desktop. Fences allows users to literally “draw” labeled shaded areas on the desktop which become movable & resizable “containers” for desktop icons. These groups arrange and hide the files on the computer’s desktop solving the “constant mess” problem that has plagued the desktop since its inception

Stardock President and CEO Brad Wardell said, “This is easily the most innovative piece of software we’ve released since WindowBlinds which considering the popularity of DeskScapes, ObjectDock, DesktopX and our other programs I think is saying a lot.”

To help solve another weak point of the desktop – the mere appearance of clutter, Fences offers a novel quick-hide feature. Users can double click the desktop and all of the icons will fade out. When users double click again the icons will return. Users can pick and choose which desktop icons hide when the feature is activated.
