Fences and Start10 are two popular apps from Stardock. Fences is an app that lets you organize your desktop icons into customizable fences. Start10 is an alternative Start menu for Windows 10 that brings additional options over the default Start menu. Both of these are also included with an Object Desktop membership.

One of the great things about having both these apps is they work wonderfully together and Start10 has an integrated feature with Fences which allows you to show your fences in the Start menu.

There’s really no setup involved, you just need to make sure in Start10 you are using either the Windows 7 Style or Modern Style Start menu configuration.


I have several fences on my desktop including folder portals, and with the Start10 integration I can now have quick access to them via my Start menu.

As you can see in the screenshot below, my ‘Desktop Stuff’ fence also shows up in my Start menu.

Our support team here at Stardock fields a lot of questions, but most commonly they receive communication from customers who aren't sure how to use and access their accounts. This quick guide will show you how to navigate our support site and make changes to your account without having to contact anyone! 

Navigating the support site
First, let's take a look at where you can access your account info, product downloads, password reset, and much more. Check out our support site here:


Updating email address and account info
Sometimes, email addresses aren't used forever. We get a lot of messages asking us how to change email addresses or update account information. It's really easy if you've created a Stardock account! You can change or update your email address, community avatar, and name through our support site.  If you don’t have a Stardock account, you can easily create one here.

Here's where you can edit your account details:


Resetting your password

When you have a million passwords to remember (because every website has different password creation conditions, am I right?), it's pretty common for people to forget which one they're using for their Stardock account. Resetting your password is really easy, all you'll need is the email associated with your account! Then, you'll get a return email with instructions on what to do from there.

You can reset your password on this page:


Accessing your downloads and product keys

Your Stardock account is your friend. Well, not really, but it's definitely the key to keeping track of any software or games you've purchased from Stardock's store. If you need to access a product key for any reason, you can have it emailed to you by entering your account email here.
