DesktopShelves can help clean up a desktop cluttered by dozens of different files.

You can display any folder as a shelf on your Desktop. On a shelf the size of 5 normal Desktop items you can fit 20 files, because items on a shelf are slightly rotated like books on a real-world shelf. That saves a lot of screen real estate.

If you mouse-over your shelves, you can see a larger preview of the file. A double-click opens it.

You can use DesktopShelves in many different ways: to organize files by project, quickly access frequently used files, or to collect text snippets and templates. Other features include:
