Editors' Review

TAGO-Fences helps you tidy up your desktop by grouping icons, folders, and files by type in expandable, customizable windows known as Fences. You can drag and pin Fences anywhere and show or hide them almost instantly. TAGO-Fences automatically adds new stuff to the right folders and hides icons you don't use often. Double-clicking restores and hides your regular desktop, so you don't have to change a thing to use TAGO-Fences. It's a neat idea that works pretty well in action, once you get used to it.

The first step is to create your Fences. It's easy: TAGO-Fences does it for you. Except for their Title Bars, all Fences are essentially identical: semi-transparent, customizable, and easy to resize and pin. You can change their background color, preferences, hot keys, and more by right-clicking the system tray icon and clicking Fences Settings. TAGO-Fences grouped our stuff in Shortcuts, Folders, Documents, and Other, in one view, and Pictures and New Fence in another. A pair of round buttons pinned to the center of our desktop's bottom edge toggled between views. We could rearrange and resize our Fences with a click, too, which is helpful if you lose track. The "Show Desktop" button in Windows dropped our Fences along with everything else. Clicking "Ctrl+Alt+F" hides and shows Fences, while punching "Ctrl+Alt+H" replicates the double-click command to hide and restore your full desktop. Hot keys are customizable, of course.

As with most desktop enhancements, TAGO-Fences takes some getting used to, though it's intuitive enough once you do. We like the ability to minimize Fences to their Title Bars and mouse over to view the contents, and also uncovering the regular desktop quickly. Our idea of a clean desktop typically means no widgets or enhancements, but we could learn to like TAGO-Fences' way of doing things.

"Messed up my desktop"

October 22, 2013  |  By rrtopaz

 |  Version: Tago Fences 2.5

Pros

Initially upon installation, does look like the "now for profit", more famous Fences by Stardock.

Cons

- my win8, 64b was slow reacting to this.
- created a second desktop page.
- folders opened on 2nd, 3rd click.
- background disappears for few seconds before folder opens.

Summary

It is buggy, to say the least; needs a heck of a lot of improvements. Doesn't help at all upon the installation w/cnet's cbs installer LOADED with crap ware that messed up my other pc...do not accept ANY of them!
