Saving files on the desktop is supposed to make files easy to access without having to go through multiple clicks. However, if left unattended, this can lead to clutter and finding files may just be as, if not more, difficult.
Enter Fences, a nifty little app that groups desktop icons into categories, such as Recent Things, Files and Documents, and Programs.
This helps greatly in searching for files and gives the desktop a more organised feel.
Installation is easy too. Download here.
