Fences lets users clean up their desktop icons in moments. Users draw "Fences" on their desktop which enables users to drag and drop icons into them. Users can have Fences show and hide by double-clicking on the desktop. In addition, users can control which icons show and hide when the desktop is double-clicked on allowing for easy desktop clean-up.

Organize your PC by automatically placing shortcuts and icons into resizable shaded areas (called Fences) on your desktop designed to match Windows 10 and 11. Fence has many customization features that make it the most popular desktop enhancement in the world.

Use Peek to instantly access your files, folders and applications by pressing Winkey + Space to place the fence on top of all windows. Save time and increase productivity by creating folder portals that give access to frequently used content at a glance.

Eliminate clutter on your desktop, but put Fences where they're easy to find with our roundup feature! Double-clicking on a fence's title bar will "roll up" the rest of the fence into it, saving you valuable space on your desktop. To show your fence, you can move the mouse over the title bar or double-click it again to see all the icons normally.

Key Features:
  • Create an unlimited number of Fence areas on desktop.
  • Quickly hide/show desktop icons with double-click.
  • Customize opacity and color tinting of Fences.
  • Auto-scaling for screen size changes.
  • Store unique Fence locations for different monitor configurations.
  • Low profile, low system impact: integrates tightly and cleanly with OS.
