Windows Download: Cleanup your desktop without loosing icons
posted March 9, 2009
TECH TIPS – I can’t stand a cluttered
desktop. It seems just like a disorganized, messy desk to me which I
also can’t take. It can also make it difficult to find things therefore
reducing productivity. However, sometimes it can be useful to have
files/shortcuts on your desktop. So, what can you do? There is a
program I recently discovered called Fences which might be the answer.
runs in the
background and can hide all your icons with a single double click on
the desktop. It can also help you organize your icons. For example, I
have various active projects at any point in time. I setup “fences” for
icons related to each project. A fence is really just a group of icons
on your desktop but the fences program keeps them together and labels
them (it’s even possible to scroll in a group).
An important tip: To create a new “fence” hold down the RIGHT mouse
button and draw a box on the desktop (by dragging the mouse with the
button held). When you release the mouse, you’ll have an option to
create a new fence. If you do this in a section of the desktop with
icons, the program will put those icons in your fence.
