Organizes desktop into customizable containers - showing folders (e.g.: local folders, network locations) contents, displayed as icons/thumbnails on scrollable surface. In-built thumbnail engine is capable of displaying thumbnails for supported Open Documents and PSD images, but also for supported PDF files.

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
it's very..crappy...and the EULA is horrendous.
install our shite tool and we can steal your computer data in any way we feel necessary!!
WE'RE ASSHOLES IF WE WANT TO BE ASSHOLES!
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.
went to http://mynimi.net/Projects/Features/Nimi-Places/ , looked for the download icon... it's at the bottom, once there, be amazed of the size, just ~300KB, awesome !, after downloaded, the .exe expands in a folder, theres no installation, after you run it be prepared to really like it but also to be frustrated that feels like an unfinished software, no open source, I ended up saving the .exe and maybe find a year after today...
A software like this is very needed... the grouping of content is really useful

An hour of my life that I'll never get back trying to make Nimi Places to work. First it crashed, almost immediately. Then it crashed again after reboot. Then I went to un-install and Nimi was nowhere to be found. No uninstall, no shortcut, no desktop icon, nothing in the Start Menu. Not even in Control Panel, nothing. Until I rebooted and there it was, embedded in my system and crashing again. So I bit the bullet and did a manual uninstall, delete from the Programs folder, scrape the registry, etc. But hey THAT'S ALWAYS A BLAST, RIGHT?!?!?! Try not to waste unsuspecting people's time for personal benefit. Knock it off and don't be evil.
This is my second time attempting to use this product. The first time did not go well at all and i removed it from my system. This time, I have been able to make it work (so far) and these are some suggestions I would make to the product. It would be nice if the following would be made to happen:
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.
It's a great, free alternative to Fences, which is cool but proprietary and thus, evil. xP
