Under Quick Actions, there are some quick actions to help you get a neat desktop, access boxes, and choose to open items by single-click or double-click, etc.
Under Layout, you can decide the boxes' layout when changes are made, like the resolution is changed.
Private Box needs to be mentioned especially because it offers a password protection to your important files and folders. After you add the files and folders to the Private Box and lock the box with a password, then the password will be required when anyone tries to access those items.
