About two months ago, I installed Fences at work to help keep my desktop looking more organized in three key ways:
- It allows me to group icons together in little fenced off groups, in little areas on my desktop.
- When I dock and undock my computer, things rejigger themselves in a rational way.
- I can double click on my desktop, I hide or show all icons, fenced or otherwise.
It’s been great for me, because I like to keep a tidy desktop with a view of my wallpaper, but there are a handful of things that I do like to keep handy if I need them. Practically speaking, I keep a few basic fences, and leverage the “hide” feature often.
It’s great because I can make everything on the desktop disappear, leaving only the pretty picture to look at. I only wish it were this easy to keep my home office this clean!
