    Looking for new desktop organization - better than Fences


    I have this tool in mind but cant quite fine anyone who makes it or anything like it.

    It would be a desktop tabs program. This allows you to put as many tabs as you want across the top or bottom of your desktop. You name the tab and you add the contents. The Games tab would have all your game icons etc. These tabs would auto hide and only appear when you hovered your mouse over it or you could set them to be always visible. You could have folders within tabs that each have their own contents. For widescreen monitors you could get a lot of tabs across the top of the screen. For square monitors or widescreen, you can have two rows of tabs if needed.

    Does anyone know of a program like this? Or someone who could make one in a language like java or visual basic? This simple app should not be very hard to make I think.

Video App organization in Software and Apps
I launched the video app for the first time today and realized how unorganized it is. I have many video clips and having just one huge giant list of all of them is not very ideal. Is there a way to add folders to the "my videos" section - or add my own TV shows in the TV tab?
