Stardock Fences organize your desktop

Posted on April 16, 2009. Filed under: Freeware/Shareware, Microsoft Windows, Utilities, Windows Vista, Windows XP | Tags: , , , , , , |

Freeware Genius has a post on Stardock Fences which allow you to organize your icons into floating areas on your desktop.

Stardock Fences is freeware (with a fancier pay version to come) but the freeware version is pretty impressive.

Got a desktop full of icons?  Fences can organize it for you (and then you can modify that if you like), or you can start from basics and do it yourself.

Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 (On Vista and Windows 7, both 32bit and 64bit versions are supported.)
