Stardock releases Fences 3.0, adds Windows 10 support, roll-up fences
Stardock has released Fences 3.0, a major new version of its Windows desktop organization tool. The new release brings Fences bang up to date, with support for Windows 10 and high DPI monitors.
Fences 3.0 also introduces several new features, including the ability to roll up fences to their title bar as well as support for navigating through folder structures from within the fence itself.
In addition to adding support for Windows 10, Fences also gives Windows 10 users the option of blurring the wallpaper behind their fences to make them easier to read. The feature is enabled by default, and can be toggled on and off via the tool’s configuration screen under "Color & appearance".
Fences 3.0 also supports roll-up fences -- by double-clicking a fence’s title bar, it’ll collapse everything except that bar, providing a more distraction-free environment. Users need simply roll their mouse over the bar to reveal the fence’s contents.
One other major feature sees Fences now allow users to navigate through a fence portal’s folder structure from within the fence itself -- previously, double-clicking a folder would open it in File Explorer. Folder portals provide users with the ability to place frequently accessed folders within a fence without having to move or copy the folder itself to the desktop.
Fences 3.0 is available now as a free trial download for PCs running Windows 7 or later. The full version can be purchased for $9.99, while upgrades start from $4.99. Fences is also included as part of Stardock’s Object Desktop suite, which costs $49.99.
