    We have all been there, and no one can deny it! We all have way too much on our desktops and Stardock is a very easy and smart fix to all this. Before using the application, I remember looking at my desktop and even nightmares to this day of not even being able to see the picture on my desktop because of all the icons I had. In addition, the computer would run so slow. Even my computer that was a newer version Toshiba running on Windows would still look so unorganized and run so slow no matter what I did to it. There would be documents everywhere and anymore and that problem was fixed by a solution called Stardock!

    Stardock is a life saver for people who need to cut out those random and ensured desktop items and organizes them into easy to read grouped items for easier navigation. I like the over 5,000,000 users of this product have quickly and easily organized their files and folders to be much more visible on their desktop. You can hide or unhide them as well. Some of the cool features are you can flip a page or make rules for certain icons or change the look and feel by changing the color of certain fences on the desktop.

    Pros :

    • I always appreciate the updates and one of the more recent updates was support for the new Windows 10, you can make edits the wallpaper on your computer, you can put Fences where ever you want and much easier navigation.
    • It does not take a lot of use from your processor as well.
    • They have come out with Fences 2 and that has fixed some of the initial minor issues.
    • Much faster and more a natural feel. Feel free to check that one out as well :)
    • This is definitely a fairly easy fix to organizing folders, cleaning up your desktop, clearing your mind and that means for productivity, and you could find what you're looking for much faster!

    Cons :

    • I could not find a real con to using this except for that fact there are other competitors out there. Honestly, the next time I have this problem, it feels much better to literally wipe your computer clean or even buy a new one.
    • I don't really trust all those ads you see on different websites and advertisements to clean off your computer.
    • This product was referred by a friend. It can't hurt to try and good luck with the computer cleaning process! :)

    StarDock has an array of interesting desktop software, Fences is definitely one of them. This software lets you customize your desktop layout by arranging the icons in boxes which you can change the colors of or make fully transparent and customize to your liking. This is great if you're like me and you tend to clutter your desktop with a ton of icons and lose track of everything.

    Using this program I was able to quickly organize things into categories (you can name each individual box) and set their properties to my liking by color coding them, setting their name, and making them a specific size as I put them in different areas on my desktop. Another thing I was surprised to learn about while using this software is it allows you to hide all of your icons by double clicking the desktop, which is really neat. You can also move your icons to a separate desktop much like you would on a tablet or mobile device when swiping between different screens and it allows your desktop to emulate that sort of feature. I used the 30 day trial of Fences and was really impressed with it, it is definitely worth picking up with how easy it organized my desktop. I found just having the color around the icons made my experience at the computer more enjoyable. This is something I will keep using as it allows me to keep my desktop nice and tidy and I really enjoy the feature of hiding my desktop icons at will.
