, a company known for its UI enhancements, has just released their latest app; Fences
. Fences allows you to group together desktop icons, sometimes known as 'all that garbage on your desktop', into clean-looking folder containers known as fences. Simply drag select the icons on your desktop and a prompt asks you to name the fence.
So how is this system fundamentally different from arranging your icons into little piles and folders yourself? First, Fences will let you hide/show those icons with a simple double click on the background. That alone is worth the price (free, btw) of installation. Second, it will allow you to size your container and provide scrollbars if it isn't big enough to display all the icons. This is much cleaner than the average pile of web icons that I have good intentions of opening in the future, and gives you a little more control over display than using folders.
Fences will work on Windows XP, Vista, and even Windows 7. More information including a video here
