Plymouth, MI. – May 18, 2016 - Today, Stardock released Fences 3, the latest version of its popular desktop organization software. Fences allows a user to automatically organize their Windows desktop shortcuts and icons in shaded areas that can be hidden by double-clicking to reduce clutter.

Fences 3 keeps all of the features of its predecessor, but adds support for modern, high DPI monitors, more translucency behind fences by blurring the wallpaper behind them, full Windows 10 compatibility, and more. Users will also be able to condense their Fences into a "title bar" instead of hiding the fence completely, allowing for better organization and easy to find files.

"As we work on new iterations of our existing software, we keep the needs of our customers in mind," said Angela Marshall, COO and Vice President of Software at Stardock. "We are always working to align with new operating systems and the way people interact with their computers. We're pleased to provide Fences 3 with support for high DPI monitors and Windows 10 compatibility, among all of its other great features."

Fences 3 joins the lineup of desktop customization enhancements available through Stardock's comprehensive Object Desktop product, where consumers can gain access to the company's award-winning software like Start10, WindowBlinds, Multiplicity, and DeskScapes. Fences 3 adds support for high DPI monitors and Microsoft Windows 10. Fences 3 is available to download now for $9.99, or as an upgrade for those who own a previous version for just $4.99.

Fences 3 is now available through Stardock here. For more information about Fences 3 and our other Windows customization software, please visit http://www.stardock.com/products.
