Like several others, I can't move icons or folders on my desktop.

This is under the following conditions:

Win 8.1

Fences public

Fences 2.01

Fences 2.10

No other Stardock software installed.

Can't drag icons/folders to the trash. 

Can't drag icons/folders to other icons/folders/Fences.

Can't drag icons/folders from Fences.

Tried changing ALL Fences settings, Align icons to Grid, Auto Arrange icons.

I used Fences public, Fences 2.01 and Fences 2.10 under Win 8 with no problem.  When I upgraded to Win 8.1 Preview, I could not move icons.

Unfortunately you can count me in. Other suggestions of uninstalling DeskScapes didn't do anything.

So it seems we'll have to wait for fitting StarDock-Updates.

Thanks in advance, I love all these customizing features, it makes Windows my Windows.

Put me in this same group..  

 Fences 2.10 does not work, I can not drag or move folders, files or fences.

My issue seemed to come when I installed WIndowBlinds.   I'm not sure of that, but I noticed it after I installed WindowBlinds.

I still have Windows 8, not 8.1.

I had the same problem but I figured it out. I could move my icons but suddenly I couldn't move my fences to another screen. I have the trial version of Fences only. I don't have any of the other programs from Stardock.

It was working fine until I was customizing some of the settings. I tried a few things and did a disk clean. Eventually, I figured out that when I unchecked "If hidden, unhide my desktop icons when switching pages".

Immediately I could move my fences.

Windows 8 Pro Home 64-bit

P.S. Can you change the color of the icons font? or remove it? I want to put a fence at the top of the screens with icon letters spelling

ex.

without having font underneath it.
