A good Windows alternative to ‘Desktop Tidy’ [for Mac] is a software called ‘Fences’.;1 You can nicely organize all your Desktop items into boxes and name them, resize them and choose a colour scheme. I don’t know if it will speed up Desktop boot times, but it does help with organization. Btw, it isn’t free – it used to be – but the new version they are charging $9.99 after a 30 day trial.

‘Winstep Nexus Dock’ is a Mac desktop look-alike for Windows which is free and it’s compatible with Win 8;pop It mimics Mac’s desktop, but I’m not sure how many programs/folders can be stored on it, but it does seem to be popular.


Well I liked Robosizer.
