    [freeware] FENCES

    Post by maxim9691 on Sat Aug 25, 2012 9:06 am

    What is Fences?
    Fences® is a program that helps you organize your desktop, and can hide your icons when they're not in use. A "Fence", a term coined by this program, is an icon group on your desktop. Fences is an add-on to your desktop, not a replacement.

    Basic Features
    Rope off your desktop
    Fences allows you to create shaded areas on your desktop that you can place icons in. You can label them however you wish, and move/resize them anywhere on the desktop. Pre-included layouts help speed the process for new users.

    See your wallpaper again! Quickly hide & show all your icons with an easy double-click
    Double click blank space on your desktop, and all your icons will fade out. Double click again, and they’ll return. We think this feature is so useful and unique, that we’ve applied for a patent on it. You can even pick icons and individual Fences to exclude!

    Create snapshots, and have automatic scaling (for screen size changes)
    Take and restore snapshots of your Fence layouts for backup, or for when you are doing different tasks. Change your resolution for playing games and Fences will keep them in the same relative spots. In the Pro version of Fences, the "snapshot" feature has been enhanced to automatically take and keep recent snapshots on hand, ensuring your desktop layout never gets lost.

    FAQ
    I'm a beginner. Is this tool for me?
    Yes. Fences is intuitive to use, has a simple user-interface, and is designed to lead you through every step if you want it to. Put it on mom & pop's computer without fear.

    I'm an advanced user. Is this tool for me?
    In a big way. Fences is low load, streamlined and unobtrusive. Advanced users will never need to open the config dialog to manage their Fences, and will find that they never notice Fences except for the fact that their desktop is finally usable. Advanced users will love the fact that Fences can maintain different icon layouts on a per-screen-resolution basis.

    This is really neat, but I wanted super-3d-futuristic graphics and stuff

    Fences was created with maximum compatibility and usefulness in mind. Instead of just making your desktop "totally-cool!"...in a totally-non-practical way, Fences skips the fluff and focuses on doing one thing right: being useful. That said, its slick presentation and smooth animation make it look great while it does that, too. Be sure to catch the video of it in action on the front page.

    What are Fences' System Requirements?
    Fences runs on all of Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. On Vista and Win7, both 32bit and 64bit versions are supported.
    Since Fences uses nearly no system resources, having the operating system is its only requirement.

    I love it too, it really makes using the normal folders unnecessary

    It doth work, and it works well.

    Much better than I expected, I like the look & the customization to suit the user.

    My favorite features is the "double click", sometimes I teach tech classes at the Library (where I work), when I do I use one of my laptops. Since I'm using My Laptop and not the Libraries' it's nice to be able to hide all of my folders/fences when showing someone a tip.
