How To: Organize Your Cluttered Mac Desktop with Desktop Groups' Clean Fence-Like Folders

Organize Your Cluttered Mac Desktop with Desktop Groups' Clean Fence-Like Folders

My desktop usually looks like this...

Cluttered as hell. As someone who needs to take screenshots all of the time, my desktop starts looking more and more like my college dorm room. It's also annoying because I misplace certain files and find myself downloading three of the same thing. This not only takes up visual space, but memory space.

Thanks to Desktop Groups Lite, I can now get rid of my desktop mess and neatly organize it inside of frames, that are very similar to the Fences application for Windows. This free application lets you build transparent frames that you can drag files into.

You can rename each frame to keep your desktop neat and organized. Each frame also has the ability to scroll down within itself. You can have up to five frames on your desktop with the free Desktop Groups Lite version. If you'd like, you can also pay for the $5.99 upgrade and have unlimited frames, but who really needs more than a handful?

* Desktop Groups only works on 64-bit Lion and Mountain Lion systems.

Sweet. Just download the lite version. Wish they could be color coded though

I think you can color code them with the paid version, but is it really worth it?
