If your desktop gets cluttered with Icons, one way to remedy the problem is to use 7Stacks, a freeware program from Alastria Software.
With 7Stacks, you can organize you icons and make them available as a stack or a menu or a grid. You can put the Icons that are in common, or a folder. It is easy to do. Here are the steps.
Next is the Setup.
This is followed by the license agreement:
Pick the destination to install to.
The additional tasks screen appears, where you can select additional icons.
With all of these items answered or selected, you are now ready to install.
The installation is complete.

Launch the 7Stack application.
Select a folder, which will stack the icons.
Or create a different type of stack.
Launch the program, and stacking the icons in a grid like fashion.
Another benefit for users is that one can use it to browse and access documents within a folder very quickly. The typical experience is that if you want to open a file in a folder, you have to launch the app, or locate it in Computer and find the folder that contains the application. Then you can launch it. In the 7stacks format, create a stack with a folder that will contain your document, and lauch it. The clicks or keystrokes will be cut down dramatically.
