Publisher's Description:

Folder Color Icon Set - Folder Color icon set is a must-have for any computer user who has lots of folders and would like to organize them for faster search and quick retrieval. The set of 36 color coded XP folder icons can be used to mark out file folders to make folders easier to spot.

With Microsoft Windows, you have a FREE way to change a folder color. You just need colored folder icons. This is what you get downloading this icon set. This set of 36 color coded folder icons includes any colors you may wish to color folder. Starting from Red and finishing by Black.

How to change folder colors in the standard Windows way:

1. First, you should select and right-click the folder

2. Secondly, select Properties from the drop-down menu

3. Thirdly, select Customize tab in the dialog

4. Then click on Change Icon… button

5. Select an icon from the suggested list

6. And change the icon by clicking on OK and then Apply button

Hem. Six steps to change a folder icon are too many!

Hopefully, there is one small utility that can do the same in a very different manner than Windows, actually in ONE click, and users will have a better choice of options and icons. The utility is called Folder Marker and it can be downloaded at . With Folder Marker folder icons can be changed ON THE FLY from the right-click menu of a folder.

Color code folders to make them easy to find!

List of Changes:

Version 1.0 from 2007-07-15

I was really looking forward to using this software and usually have no trouble working with software but for what ever reason I never got this to work. I finally just downloaded rainbow folders and it was simple and served the purpose.

Took me a little while to work out this went with Folder Marker, the free version of which I already had, and to swap this set for the basic set already supplied, but once it was done, everything went smoothly. I've not had such a tidy desktop ever. If they could only produce a program to encourage me to tidy my physical desk…

I did not download these since the instructions for implementing them in a directory were for Microsoft directories, and I need this solution for a SharePoint library with folders. There is no "customize" Tab in SharePoint as there is in a file share directory. Thanks anyway.

They work real nice, but it fails: it doesn't work on other computers. I color coded my folders on my flash drive and I went to school and put it in on their computer and the color coding wasn't there. Otherwise its nice

My Norton Security said the risk was high security and deleted the Folder Color from my computer.

With some difficulty, an hour of time, and more than one click, I managed to change the colors on my desktop folders yesterday. However, the changes did not register and this morning everything had reverted to boring manila color. I am not doing it again and have given up trying with your product. I see by other threads that this is not unusual. Too bad. It is a nice idea only, poorly interfaced for casual users.

Hello, I tried to work with Folder Color Icon Set 1.0 in XP, but it didn't work! I just continue with the IColor-folder that I had, not as pretty as yours, but always better than nothing.
Friendly, Els.

I like the color folders, but the icon shape does not fit the desktop theme that i'm using so i uninstalled the software.

The program looked good, but download failed for one big reason. I have a Apple Computer. Why don't you write another program for all Apples as well as Windows.

It would be better if you could avail more colors in the free version. However, thanks for your support.

I find it very helpful to have the different folder icons but i am disappointed in the colours as i wanted to be able to have a range of tones for a group of coloured folders .I only have a limited range in the free download which is not immediately clear from the information re downloading. and I couldn't get pink.
I'm dyslexic and the colours really make a good difference to me so i'm pleased .

I like my computer to be as fun to work with as possible, so I chose the Folder Color Icon Set.

Additionally, color coding helps me identify folders quickly and easily, which is efficient.

I am impressed with this product and am enjoying it.

I have been looking for a product like this for a long time. Download and installation was easy and the product does exactly what I wanted from it with the exception that I am not able to colour code my Outlook folders. It has made my use of My Doc's folders very much easier and I heartly recommend the product. Penguin

My husband mentioned to me that he would sure like to color his folders like he did years ago when he was on a Mac. I said to myself *there has to be a way with third party software.* I found your site and he is one happy camper needless to say!I like using them also so we thank you. Easy to install and use, thank you!

EXCELLENT tool! I am trying to keep track of RSVPs for a large wedding and color coding the folders has made access to specific folders much faster. I'm using the tool with my work folders as well!

it wasn`t what i wanted

I searched Google for a means to change the colours of MS Outlook folder icons. the returned results included your product. It was only after i downloaded it that i realised that it wasn't what i was looking for, but checked it out anyway. It didn't work.

Not for Vista

Great idea but couldn't get it working with vista - says their is no content in the folder!

Didn`t work

I'm not sure if it is because I have a 32-bit Windows Vista Home Premium, but Folder Marker couldn't find any icons from the .ICL file, which I assumed to be the file that has the icons in it.

I like it

I really like the folder color icon set. I would like more colors though like teal, lavender or purple, peach, mint green, lots more colors would be so great. That's my only suggestion. Otherwise its a great little program. :)

Organization is key in all aspect of success. These icons are a great little tool for those who appreciate detail and like a visual work environment that is user friendly and visually pleasing to the eye.

Folder Icon Colot Set

Excellent little program has made my life with folder sorting much easier. easy to use and only a small program taking up no space practically.
If folders adorn you desktop and you want to categorise them then this Folder Icon Colot Set will be a great help to you.

Using the program was extremely easy and is a user friendly type.Performance was better than expected

Easy to install, easy to use and easy on the eye.

Recommended for the dicerning.

looking good but doesn´t work in 64 bits

Well the software sounds really good, but doesn't work properly in vista 64bits ... the right click button menu does not appear when you cliked over any folder ... so at least for my use, the software is poor.

not for vista?

I like the idea, but it did not seem to work on Windows Vista, which, unfortunately, came on my new laptop. Sigh.

Outlook Folders colors

I wanted to change the colors of Outlook folders, and the software doesn't do that, apparently.

Folder Icon Color

I have only used the free stuff, but I do like it enough that I will see what all I get on the paid stuff. I would be interested in a good variety of different icons and not just colors. Microsoft has some but I could use a bigger variety and is why I searched for your product in the first place. Example: A good picture of a telephone, cell phone and also perhaps some that will blink to catch the eye. I could also use icons to replace a Word or Excel document.

Folder Icon set

Very easy to use program. Good colors, would like to see some very bright solid colors too.
I use this to help identify my folders and keep them organized. It gives interest to my computer too.
