Fences is an amazing desktop organizing software to maintain a clean and tidy desktop. It works on Windows XP, Vista and even Windows 7! Post installation, it presents a wizard that lets you choose between using their built-in container layouts and also it tries to detect and group icons on its own (of course, you can change it and customize it to your heart’s content).
The containers, called ‘fences’, can be resized and dragged anywhere on the screen and can also be locked. It has also got a neat options dialog where you can further tweak the settings for each and all fences. Fences also lets you hide your grouped icons altogether. Check out the official screenshots†.

† Sorry for not posting screenshots this time. I’ve just finished building my computer and its only a barebone machine for now. So I’ve linked to the original page for people who wanna check it out. Thanks to Lifehacker for the original post.
