    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
