It does not work at all after I upgraded it to the recent version (7/7/2018). That's why I have to replace it with an alternative.

Stardock Fences would be my favorite icon grouper, but its license activation is unstable and obsessively paranoid. It randomly loses its activation and I have to re-activate. Nimi Places gives me nearly the same functionality without the activation hassles. I just wish Nimi Places could perform its organization without my having to move my stuff into separate folders, for reasons. Still, I'd rather do that than to continue the Stardock activation battles.

While free for non-commercial use, this is not open source software.

Be sure to read the license! 3)(d) APPLICATION might COLLECT, UPLOAD, DOWNLOAD and STORE:ANY INFORMATION and THIRD PARTY INFORMATION without confirmation and prior notice.

This is far too broad for me. I won't use it.

Thank you for pointing that out. In today's world that is unacceptable, I get needing ad revenue but that is a red flag

I recommend that you don't install this. The installation is unclear. The uninstall is non-existent. I installed it under/Users/MyName. It grabbed everything on the desktop.. folder and file and put it in thumbnail. There appears to be no way to get it out of their cubes other to do a Delete which will actually put the folder in the Trash. I deleted the Nimi file under User and hoped for the best (I do keep backups) That seems to be the only way to get rid of this little monster. Poorly crafter, and as others are mentioning, it is not open source or necessarily private.

Folder contents don't update and constantly crashes. Even worse, it offers to save the crash report, which would suggest the purpose of doing so would be to submit it to the developers for debugging, but it offers no means of contacting them, and checking the website they just rant for several paragraphs about how their email is private. Well, way to go Nima, you've succeeded in keeping people from emailing you, including with crash reports, so your POS software can stay a POS. What a waste of time.

Crashes on Windows 10, requires uninstalling manually:

  • Ctrl+Shift+Esc > Startup > right-click Nimi Places > Disable
  • Delete these folders
    • C:\Program Files\Nimi Places
    • C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME\.Nimi Places
  • WinKey + R > regedit > enter
  • Delete:
    • HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StartupApproved\Run\NimiPlaces
    • HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\NimiPlaces

Then the only places referencing it will be lists of "recently ran applications" or "recently opened files".
