Organize Your Desktop with Fences

Fences is a free program which helps you in organizing your desktop icons for more efficiency and productivity. The program lets you quickly organize your icons into separate windows on your desktop. You can choose from pre included layouts or you can move and resize them according to your liking. You can even label them into different groups for better organization.

If you don’t like icons on your desktop,  you can double click on any blank space on your desktop and the icons will disappear. Double click again and the icons will appear again. This behaviour can also be customized and you can pick icons and fences that you want to exclude. You may have noticed that while playing a computer game or while changing resolutions, the arrangement of icons goes haywire. With fences, you can take and restore snapshots of your fence layouts for backup. It will also keep them in the same relative path in spite of resolution changes ensuring that your desktop layout never gets lost.

The program is a freeware and works on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. A pro version of the software is also available with some advanced features.
