Roll up Fences
Eliminate clutter from your desktop, but keep your fences where it’s easy to find them with our roll-up feature! Double-clicking on a fence’s title-bar will “roll up” the rest of the fence into it, saving you valuable space on your desktop. To reveal your fence, you can move your mouse over the title-bar or double-click it again to view all of the icons as normal.
Fences can act as a portal to any folder on your PC. For example, your documents or pictures folders can be mirrored onto your desktop as a fence enabling quick access to their contents without adding clutter to your desktop.
Customize your Fences
Quickly personalize the labels, background colors, and transparency of your fences from the easy-to-use configuration menu.
Instantly clean up your desktop. Double-click any blank space on your desktop and your desktop icons will fade out. Double-click again and they will return. You can even pick icons and individual fences to exclude.
Create multiple pages of fences on your desktop and quickly swipe between them. To change to a different desktop page, just take your mouse cursor to the edge of your screen and click and drag. Then a new page of fences will be displayed. This feature provides greater control over how you can organize favorite programs, documents, websites and more.
