On occasions, I come across some software that saves me a ton of time or help me be a bit more organized. Here is one that definitively helps me both ways.
I use my desktop as somewhat of a clipboard for temporary files and end up with a cluttered workspace. When it gets out of control, I then tend to create a folder called “old desktop” and must have several of these in my backups.
This software allows you to create these regions or fences that hold your shortcuts and files together. You can create as many as you want and basically group your files. There is a ton more features and even more good products from their site. Oh, and did I mention it is free…?
