This isn’t an endorsement (or a non-endorsement for that matter — just passing info along). I’ve not downloaded the program for use, but did look over the site after this release came across the inbox tonight. It looks pretty interesting for Windows users.

My desktop is an ongoing mess, and that’s just the one full of papers, books and a half-empty candy box. Badabing, I’ll be here all week folks. Be sure to tip your waitress and try the porterhouse special on Tuesday night …

Stardock’s New ‘Fences’ Application Solves Desktop Clutter Problems, Organizes the Desktop

PLYMOUTH, Mich., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ — Stardock launched its most innovative desktop utility application since the popular WindowBlinds today — Stardock Fences for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. The free application from Stardock clears desktop clutter and provides consistency and organization for groups of files on the desktop. Fences allows users to literally “draw” labeled shaded areas on the desktop which become movable & resizable “containers” for desktop icons. These groups arrange and hide the files on the computer’s desktop solving the “constant mess” problem that has plagued the desktop since its inception.

Stardock President and CEO Brad Wardell said, “This is easily the most innovative piece of software we’ve released since WindowBlinds, which considering the popularity of DeskScapes, ObjectDock, DesktopX and our other programs I think is saying a lot.”

To help solve another weak point of the desktop — the mere appearance of clutter, Fences offers a novel quick-hide feature. Users can double click the desktop and all of the icons will fade out. When users double click again the icons will return. Users can pick and choose which desktop icons hide when the feature is activated.
