    "Great tool for desktop organization"

    February 15, 2012  |   By wheelsman


    Simple to use
    Did I say this was free?
    This product is better than the paid version from my research
    Exclude from hide feature is what makes this the best utility!


    After reorganizing my desktop icons into the Fences, I found that it was like someone cleaning all the papers off my desk, took a little time for me to get familiarized where everything is located now. lol


    This is an excellent tool to clean up desktop clutter, something I have needed for quite a while. I've been using for a few weeks and really love it. My most frequently used icons/shortcuts are set to never hide and are the only ones that show on my desktop now. When I need to see everything else, just double click any blank area on the desktop and my other fences pop up. Works with dual monitors.
