Alternative way to show files in a folder? E.g. like on desktop

Hi MR,

When working on a project I often start out with some files on my desktop. On the desktop I can group them organically; Keep them close if they are in the same project, closer if they are even more related. It's simple and works great, but also takes up a lot of desktop space when I have more projects running.

Do you know any way to keep this kind of organizing files while not using desktop space?

Create a folder and set Arrange By to None using Show View Options (command-J)

You might want to check out a program called Desktop Groups
It is very similar to Fences on Windows
