Normally whenever I repair a PC I tell the customer that they should limit the amount shortcuts or folders or files that they place on the desktop to speed up performance (it also really annoys me with all the clutter). I just discovered, as many of you may have, the wonderful free program fences that organizes your desktop folders and shortcuts into categories and looks really cool. My question is, will this really slow down the PC?
