Humble Lifehacker Software Bundle
Pay what you want for a bundle of nifty software and support charity!
Go get this for Fences alone. Fences is one of my must have / I cannot believe this isn't a feature built into Windows already apps. LastPass is my go-to password manager. So for $1 (or more) you can get Fences + DeskScapes, Beevy (text expander), and Opus (Windows Explorer alternative/replacement.
Bump up and beat the average for $7.55 and you can get all of the above plus DisplayFusion (which is a kick ass multimonitor display program – I've used it for years.. it's the jam), LastPass, and CyberGhost. $15 or more and you get all of the above and Acronis True Image and Bitdefender antivirus.
This is a wicked good deal for some really quality software.

What is Fences?

But in short with Fences you can drag your mouse and make a "fence" and put icons in it. So for instance on my desktop I have a "System" fence that has My computer, docs, etc. Then I have a "Dev" fence that contains the links to my development tools, and a "Games" fence (self explanatory). It makes it so you can double click on your desktop and make everything disappear so it's all neat and clean. You can also assign ones you don't want to disappear – so on mine I double click and everything but System and Dev go away to make my desktop nicer to look at, but then I double click again and everything comes back.
You can also create rules so that if you drag a doc onto your desktop it automatically gets placed in your "Documents" fence. There's also a desktop "portal" function that lets you create a fence out of any folder. So let's say you have a "Current Writing Projects" folder in your My Docs folder and within it are subfolders of projects you're working on. You can create a portal to that folder and it's… literally like a portal to that folder living on your desktop.
This is one of the first programs I install on every computer. Everybody who sees it for the first time has the same type of reaction… "Woah… what is… how'd you do that?" and then I show them how it works and they go buy a copy. There is a 30 day trial on their site but for $1 it's worth just snapping it up now.

Only if the lastpass wasn't for new customers only, throw us old timer's some love.

That's always a frustrting thing. The reason I posted this is I own many of these products already so I can honestly recommend them. I pay for LastPass too and for what it offers at $12/year I can't complain +Steve Vance.
