This is a must have program for Windows users. I've been looking for something like this since ever! Simple as it looks it has increased my productivity a lot, now I can organize the files for each of the project I'm running and keep them at the same position even when switching between screen resolutions or between screens when I plug an extra monitor. I can't believe Microsoft never thought of this!!

Wow, this is really nice for my general-use workstation, which is littered with desktop icons. It was quick to set up, and just took a little time to sort through all the stuff I had accumulated over the last three years.

Excellent idea, however the implementation is lacking. It does not support two-finger scrolling for all touchpads. This has been a problem for the last 6 years (according to stardock forum posts) and is still unsolved.

Good for organizing your desktop icons and, most importantly, keeping them organized. Unfortunately, Fences suffers from poor performance (low frame rate) even on high-end systems. It would be great to get some proper hardware acceleration for dragging, dropping, resizing, and page switching to smooth out the animations. Aside form that minor issue, Fences is super useful.

Like every other Stardock program I've tried, this was half-baked. Great ideas with mostly good implementation, but too many issues, missing too many things, lousy support, and overpriced considering all that. Spent/wasted far too much time on it.

I bought three or four copies and did updates but I always run into problems with it disappearing or hanging etc. so I have given up. I use DesktopOK now which is simpler but works well.
