Editors' Review

Group programs, files, folders, and other desktop icons together with Fences to keep your desktop organized and make it easier to find what you need. It's easy to set up and manage all of the Fences you need.

Pros

Does the heavy lifting for you: You can choose the Advanced option to set up your Fences, but less experienced users can opt for an easier approach, which creates three default Fences, Programs Folders, and Files & Documents, and places your desktop icons in the appropriate location. The only icon that doesn't move into a Fence is the Recycle Bin.

Easy to set up and manage: It's easy to drag and drop icons from one Fence to another and only a couple clicks to rename a Fence or create a new one. You can even designate a default fence, so all new icons will be placed there automatically.

Cons

Email required: You can't start Fences until you submit a valid email and click the link in the activation email the publisher sends you. It didn't take long, but we prefer the option of trying the product before offering up personal information.

Bottom Line

If your desktop is getting so cluttered that it's hard to find what you're looking for, Fences offers an easy, effective solution to keep your desktop icons organized in whatever way works best for you.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Fences 2.13.
