Fences is a free application from Stardock that helps you organize your desktop, and can hide your icons when they’re not in use. It allows you to draw labeled shaded areas on your desktop, which become movable & resizable containers for your desktop icons. These groups can help bring organization and consistency to your computer’s desktop, solving the “constant mess” problem.
Fences helps you glow the wallpaper which you have hiding behind all that clutter. It also offers a novel quick-hide feature (in-patenting-process). Double click your desktop, and all your icons will fade out. Double click again, and they’ll return.
