How to Organize Your Computer Desktop with Fences

Do you get lost looking for app or document icons on your desktop?

Most accountants like organization, yet I often see total chaos on their computer desktops.

A typical CPA’s screen looks like this.

Creating Order on Your Desktop

So how can you bring order to your desktop?

Use Fences. The cost is $9.99, but well worth the iconic bliss.

Once Fences is downloaded, you simply right-click and drag on your screen to create a new fence (see below). Above you see a fence titled “Programs.” You can arrange the icons in whatever order you wish. To add an icon to a fence, you simply drag it to the desired location.

Once you arrange your icons, they stay that way. When you reboot your computer the next morning, you’ll find your icons in the same order.
