    Cool Fence your desktop with Stardock Fences

    Fences is a program that helps you organize your desktop, and can hide your icons when they're not in use. It's FREE for personal use, so try it out today, and change how you use your desktop forever!





    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. These groups can help bring organization and consistency to your computer's desktop, solving the "constant mess" problem that has plagued the desktop since its inception.

    Stardock Fences also helps you finally appreciate the wallpaper you have hiding behind all that clutter. In addition to its organizing features, Fences offers a novel quick-hide feature (in-patenting-process). Double click your desktop, and all your icons will fade out. Double click again, and they'll return.

    That sounds kind of cool!!

    I currently use RocketDock with auto hide.

    I wonder if Fences allows you to hide the fenced in area and bring it back up with a hotkey or something similar.

    Edit: Yes. I went to the site. If you double click a empty desktop space they disappear and if you double click again they reappear. This looks really cool the more I read about it. I love the idea of grouping icons in labeled fenced in areas.
