Create a Fence: Automatically organize your Windows desktop shortcuts and icons in shaded areas to make a clutter-free workspace for creating.

 

Customize the Appearance of Fence Labels: Use the configuration menu to set labels on hide, mouseover, or as always visible.

 

Save Space with the Roll-up Feature: Click on a fence and minimize it to its title bar, freeing up space while still keeping it visible and accessible.  You can even set configuration to do this automatically.

Lock a Fence: Prevent the accidental placement or movement of your fences on your desktop by locking the fence’s position, size, and roll-up.

 

Customize the Color of Each Fence: Fine tune the transparency, color, intensity, and saturation of each fence, individually or all at once. Additional tweaks like outlining fences or changing the title fonts are also available.

Set Snapping Parameters for each Fence: Disable snapping at any time or enable the ability to keep fences lined up when moving, spaced apart by specific pixel range or sized by even multiples of icons when resizing.
