Software of the day: Fence

Saturday, January 07, 2012 Posted by Ismail Habib , 72 comments

Fence is a software created by Stardock that helps organize icons/files in your Windows's desktop. Basically what a user can do is to create a "fence" (kind of group) and associate icons of your choice into it. The fences are blocks that does not enlarge/shrink according to the number of icons/files you put there, but instead the size are determined by the user themselves. Thus, no matter how many icons/files you have, it will still look like it's very well organized ;)

For someone like me who loves to put everything in desktop (who doesn't?), Fence is a must-have-tool. Quite often I put something that I would need immediately, but most probably wouldn't be for long in the desktop. Fence help he organize it so that in the future it is very easy to find find and remove them. Another nice thing that I like: Fence does not separate the icons in different fences to actual different directories, so it does not mess up the files location.

Fence is free, and if you want more features, they have a paid version for it as well.
