My wife will tell you I’m no organization zen master, but I do occasionally dabble in the organizational arts. I think I’ve mentioned before, I like the idea of being organized more than the actual practice. At any rate, I found today a sweet little tool to help organize your Windows 7 or Vista desktop. Fences, a currently free app from Stardock, lets you very quickly organize the chaos that is your desktop icons into neat little areas. For example, check out my newly organized desktop:
What’s really cool, though, is that you can hide everything just by double clicking the background, plus set any icon or fence to stay visible. On mine, the desktop does this:
It installs with minimal fuss and even helps you get started organizing. What a brilliant app. If you like this app and the idea of organization, be sure to also check out Evernote.
