    • Free, and it works almost the same. Just has a little more setup than Fences does. Guest • Feb 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • This performs ONE of Fences' secondary functions: displaying the contents of directories OTHER THAN the Desktop as virtual containers on the Desktop. IT IS NOT for organizing Desktop icons/files or setting up automatic rules for categorization of new Desktop icons/files. Guest • Apr 2018 Disagree   Agree

  • ICU - Icon Configuration Utility

    Restore your desktop when the icons get “rearranged”. Melba23 and I found we were working on very similar ideas to restore the Desktop icons to their normal place if they became “rearranged”. Vista seems to like this doing on occasion just for fun – but we all know some applications and games which change the display resolution or move icons around.
