Fences 2.12

Fences is a program that helps you organize your desktop. It can hide icons when they are not in use as well as make it easy to place icons into moveable groups called "fences". Fences popularity has been driven by its capability to help users easily organize cluttered PC desktops by automatically grouping and sorting icons, shortcuts and files into managed fenced areas controlled by the user's custom settings. Fences 2.12 eliminates desktop clutter with adjustable fenced areas that organizes desktop objects into logical groups for quick access.

New and improved in Fences version 2.12:

  • Added allowing users to choose between rounded and 90 degree angle corner edges in the Fences config (defaulted by OS)
  • Added prompt for email at trial activation
  • Re-enabled touch features. This includes using two fingers to switch between desktop pages (enabled by default) and the ability to "flick" icons into fences (disabled by default). Both are options in the settings, on the "Desktop Pages" and "Layout and snapping" tabs respectively.

Huh, I thought it was $5. Did the price go up, or did they always charge that much? Oh, well, I have an Object Desktop subscription, anyway.
