Article posted on 10/9/2012

Plymouth, Michigan - OCTOBER 9, 2012 - Stardock announced the availability of Fences 2.0 today ( ), the most popular PC organization software in the world. Fences 2.0 eliminates desktop clutter with adjustable fenced areas that organizes desktop objects into logical groups for quick access.

Stardock's VP of Business Development Jamie McGuffie stated, "With this new release more than 5 million Fences users will now benefit from the ability to quickly create a portal view into all the files in a folder using an intuitively managed desktop fenced area. This enhancement extends the same organizational capabilities users have enjoyed with icons and shortcuts to folders."

Fences popularity has been driven by its capability to help users easily organize cluttered PC desktops by automatically grouping and sorting icons, shortcuts and files into managed fenced areas controlled by the user's custom settings. The new Fences 2.0 features will now keep frequently used folders visible and organized on the desktop by populating a fence with files from any folder. Customization options direct Fences to automatically place new icons in designated fenced areas. Additionally, a simple double click can hide or unhide all fence groups revealing an unobstructed view of the desktop.

Users around the world rely on Fences every day to keep their PC desktops organized for quick and easy access to their programs and files they use most.

Fences is free to use via a 30-day trial with an option to purchase for $9.99.
