The Cure for the Cluttered Desktop

Most people have a desktop cluttered with random junk. Programs you never use, install files that you forgot to delete, ‘that one document’ you had to refer to for a project a while back then never put back in My Documents. We’ve all been there. Then, when you actually need something, you can’t find it. And heaven help you if you share a computer, because then the tragedy of the commons kicks in and you’re really screwed.

Yeah, I know, you’re going to go through and clean it all up ‘someday.’ But ‘someday’ will never come.

There’s a free program that can help you keep your desktop organized and prevent all this from happening: Fences.

I found out about this one through the Data Doctors newsletter (an effective customer newsletter in its own right, but that’s for another blog post).

Fences lets you draw labeled boxes on your desktop to corral your icons and folders. This helps with the clutter issue, but the biggest boost is that you can group your icons by function – never get a work document lost among your bad Battlestar/Star Wars fanfic ever again! (OK, maybe that’s only a problem if you’re me.) Plus you can finally see that wallpaper you were so proud of when you downloaded it in 1997 but haven’t seen since.

Follow this elegant and finely crafted link to claim your free copy of Fences from Stardock.*

And if you appreciate free programs like Fences that make your life easier, stay tuned.

*Stardock also makes some pretty rockin' games, if you're into that sort of thing.
