    After a couple of months of not posting, I've decided to once again ask this forum for help. I need a way to organize my desktop icons into groups that would be on my desktop. I made a program like that a while ago, it was like mini windows on the desktop with icons in them, but it didn't work fast enough, so I'm looking for a commercial solution.

    Again, thanks in advance.

    i use bblean and i love it. there is a plugin for it that will group your icons for you. its a full windows shell replacement but you say your a programmer so you should have no problem setting it up. its very minimalistic which i love.

    I use ObjectDock for my quick icon needs. The free version is pretty great, and the paid one gives you access to a tabbed dock, as well as multiple docks

    Indeed it's not bad, but which plugin groups the icons for you?

    You mean, like Windows 3.11?

    I used to use litestep, but that didn't keep the icons organized, it just cleaned them from the desktop. I like my desktop either filled to brim with icons or completely clean.

    Yeah - like Windows 3.11 except.... modern and cool looking. Preferably something that integrates into Windows.
