    Fences 1.0

    Fences works by allowing users to "draw" labeled shaded areas on the desktop, which become movable & resizable containers for any desktop icon. These groups can help bring organization and consistency to your computer's desktop, solving the "constant mess" problem that has plagued the desktop since its inception. Fences also helps users finally appreciate the wallpaper hiding behind a cluttered desktop. In addition to its organizing features, Fences offers a quick-hide feature: Double click your desktop, and all your icons will fade out. Double click again, and they'll return. More info, screenshots, and videos can be found here. Download Fences 1.0 (Free)

  12. SoundPackager is an application that lets users change the default Windows sound scheme to one of many available for download. This is done by applying “packages” of sound files which allows you to easily change to custom sounds without having to change each individual sound file. Changing to a new sound package just takes a couple of clicks, and restoring to the default Windows sounds is just a click away. What’s new in this update: Added option to toggle default skin Improved the left panel options for clarity Added Windows Default Sound to Package list Added option to back up existing sound scheme before application Improved sound package restoration SoundPackager is included with an Object Desktop Ultimate subscription, and also as a stand-alone application for $19.95. More information, including a free download is available at www.soundpackager.com.
  13. Stardock is excited to announce its most innovative desktop utility application since the popular WindowBlinds today – Stardock Fences for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. The free application from Stardock clears desktop clutter and provides consistency and organization for groups of files on the desktop. Fences allows users to literally “draw” labeled shaded areas on the desktop which become movable & resizable “containers” for desktop icons. These groups arrange and hide the files on the computer's desktop solving the "constant mess" problem that has plagued the desktop since its inception. To help solve another weak point of the desktop - the mere appearance of clutter, Fences offers a novel quick-hide feature. Users can double click the desktop and all of the icons will fade out. When users double click again the icons will return. Users can pick and choose which desktop icons hide when the feature is activated. Visit the Fences website to see more screenshots and videos of Fences in action, and for your free download. http://www.stardock.com/products/fences/index.asp
  14. You need to make sure you go to the Extras tab and make sure the image dimensions are correct. If they are off, then you will get issues like ones shown in your images. I would also suggest opening various existing skins in SkinStudio and taking look at how the start menu's there are setup. If all else fails, feel free to inquire at the forums on WinCustomize where there are many experienced skinners who can offer assistance.
