Notes

First public version without expiration date.
Fences is free and will remain free; developers hope to have a Pro version with even more features available later this year.

Pros
  • Very easy to use
  • Fully customizable icon boxes
  • Includes layout templates
  • Double click to make icons disappear
Cons
  • You can't add new shortcuts directly to boxes
  • Doesn't include themes

"Easy to use & customize. No silly bells and whistles. I wouldn't be w/o it."

One of the 'Cons' stated in the Softonic review is inaccurate - you can, in fact, designate a box/fence into which new short cuts will be automatically placed. Choose an existing one, or create one for the purpose, e.g. 'New Shortcuts'. This helps keep the desktop organized and tidy, and saves having to hunt down new icons. An excellent little program with one minor flaw in the current version: if you choose 'List' in the Fences view options, you will often find that it defaults to 'Details' view when you next open Windows. For that, I can only score it 9/10. Well worth the low cost.
