There was a bug in Fences 3 and Fences 4 that was supposedly fixed in 4 but still exists in Fences 5. Namely that icons appear through the surface of other programs. In a short test during the weekend it seems that as you know it so far, nothing improved and old bugs continue to exist
Fences v3 around 2020 - Unfortunately Stardock Corp. has not been able to fix this bug since years - next to another bug, which indent the Fences by millimeters and moving icons (what was supposedly fixed...) - Why do you send telemetry data to Google, LLC and Dropbox at all if you do not repair or develop your own program?
Screenhot is from Fences 4 version around 2022 - by Stardock Corporation - Desktop Icons shine through various applications - Bug was AND IS also active in Fences 3 since many years.
Fences 5 has still overlapping bugs
According to the statement in the related product forums here on Steam, the error was fixed, but that was a lie. There were some discussions about this to which I got some cheeky answers from your support.
I would also like to know if you have turned off your spyware in Fences 5? Fences 3 and 4 send regular callbacks to Google Analytics and a supposed crash report system (without a crash, of course) and the use of unique data such as the SID and other sensible data?

I would also like to point out that on Steam, Mr. sean.drohan has only given cheeky and evasive answers in several discussions regarding Fences 3 and 4 in his time.
There are few more related entries.
In regards to Fences 5, if you offer product forums on Steam, but don't provide help, but refer people here, then what are you forums and moderators for?
Anyways, bugs still exist since v3. And i I have not yet received a satisfactory answer on the subject of data collection and regular heart beat questions / crashreports (without crash)
The /pulse telemetry command is also active in v5
All Fences versions were tested with various OS versions, both in operation and freshly formatted. Resolution as example was a normal 100% for Fences 5 overlapping.
