This is a thread about what people want to see in next version of Fences and if people want to see the fence rise above open windows they write it. Some half explained answers about different desktop levels or someone saying what Fences is or not is not a feature request or an answer to request people have!
Fences [as it was/is designed] is NOT and CANNOT act like a Window or a Dock or anything you can think of that opens at different levels.
Desktop Icons are where Microsoft puts them.
They cannot be moved to any other level as they are then NOT "Desktop Icons".
Microsoft has ALWAYS located them at this level. Fences arranges them AT THIS LEVEL.
Requested Features cannot include every whim, no matter how many times someone asks...or how popular it might be.
I, TOO, want to see Fences accessible ABOVE open windows, but for that to happen Fences must be an ENTIRELY different program...ie. like a Dock....or like 'Control Panel' - a WINDOW with a bunch of icons on it.....BUT, and it's an Important 'BUT'.... the icons in the icon-view of Control Panel are NOT "Desktop Icons".
If Fences could ever open above a Window...on top of a Window...it would not be Fences....
The answer is not 'half explained'. It is, however possibly only 'half understood'...
