Over the last year, Fences went from sort of interesting to "can't live without it" for me.
I'm an independent business owner and I have many hats. I use Fences to organize a desktop for everything I'm doing.
- basic email
- product development
- video production
- photo editing
I have two features that I really, really want. I want these because "alt-left" and "alt-right" or using the mouse to swipe through many Desktop Pages is painful. I currently have 11 Desktop Pages. Switching could involve 10 swipes or "alt-left/right"s.
1. Ability to tie a hot-key to a Desktop Page.
I use "Win-Tab" to move across Windows 10 virtual desktops all the time. I'd prefer a similar ability to change Fences Desktop pages.
There are two possibilities.
1.a Use a similar UI to windows 10 "Win-Tab".
1.b Allow a Fences Desktop page to be tied to a specific hotkey. Like Win-1 corresponds to "basic editing".
Both would be great. I think a Win-Tab would be easier to learn and remember. I think the direct hot key link would be faster for the kind of work I do.
2. Ability to tie or lock a Desktop Page to a Win-10 Virtual Desktop. Or an option for the Fences Desktop page to be "per" Virtual Desktop.
This would let me switch Desktop Pages and Virtual Desktops in the same key stroke. In many ways, this is better than option #1.
Anyways. Even if I don't get these, Fences is in my top 5 tools on Windows. Love it.
