When there are too many folders on your Windows computer, it can get confusing and it can become increasingly uncomfortable to find the one you need.
This is because almost all Windows folders have the same yellowish icon, except the special ones that are documents, music, images, videos.
It then becomes very useful to change the color of the figures so that the icons are different from each other and to highlight those that are accessed more frequently.
The goal is to quickly identify the favorite and most important folders at a glance.
On every Windows version, both Windows 10 and Windows 7 and 8, you can change the icon of a folder or any other object, pressing the right mouse button, going on the properties and then, from the “customize” tab, change the icon.
One way to change the folder icons easier, immediate and with more options, is installing one of these softwares that not only allow you to quickly highlight folders by giving them a different figure but also to change icons without wasting time downloading new figures.
1) Rainbow Folders allows you to choose up to 7 different colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink and gray) and, optionally, different icons. This program integrates into the context menu and allows you to choose any color to highlight the different folders in a different and personalized way.
You can also save a list of favorite colors so that you can quickly apply them every time.
If then you are undecided or you are in a hurry, you can make a random choice of color.
Rainbow Folders offers 3 different types of folder icons and also allows you to set an alert that appears when you delete that folder.
2) Folder Colorizer 2 is a more modern program, easy to use and with a better graphic appearance, which allows you to change the color of folders in Windows.
Once installed (attention to the sponsor), you can choose the color of each folder by clicking on it with the right mouse button.
3) Folder Marker is another program to change color in folders so as to highlight them, give them more importance and make them more recognizable during searches. 4) Stylefolder is a small free software to change icons style, change size, colors and folder background.
5) Folder Painter is a simple portable program to change folder icons by giving different colors.
You can use predefined colors or even custom colors.
Finally, remember that you can also change the background of a window, with a different color or an image.
