This one reminds me the permanent freeware Folder Painter v1.2...

Is Folder Marker Home 4.3 more powerful ?

Using paint + personalize folder icon feature in Win results in better, easier icons. Even more so with only the personalized options already provided by Windows.

OK, got code with GMAIL, but for some reason HOTMAIL was not working to get the code, even though they did get my email and replied to me about the newsletter subscription. Had this happen with some other giveaway key code emails also, that's why tried GMAIL as a 2nd chance. It may help others with this same issue.

5. Use the key given, in the second email sent, to easily register the program.
Done!!

I understand this is a giveaway but why...
You can create your own folder icons which is super easy to do, always free, and look much better than this programs folder options.

Guys, we have found a bug in the Giveaway edition. Sorry :(
Right-click menu didn't work properly.

We have made the fix and uploaded the fixed version to this address:
http://foldermarker.com/FolderMarkerHome-Giveaway-Edition.exe

This is the same link we send in every email with license key.
Please download it and install above the version you've got from GOTD. This will fix the non-working Mark Folder menu.

Sorry again for this :'(

Loaded fine, but "Right-Click" does nothing. After opening the program and choosing a file, had to select the icon twice but it finally applied to the folder. Wish Right-Click would work. Why would we buy a program that doesn't work?

Registered just fine. Got the first email to my Gmail inbox and the second with the code to my inbox after confirming.

However, the program doesn't work for me on Windows 10. Make a color or icon selection and my window does a blink like it is applying it but nothing changes. Still same standard folder. :(

Well did their reg email system. Got the fast confirmed email one w/o any key just that I've confirmed to receive their emails, tho says can end that any time. Tried that confirm 2nd time & goes to website which says already confirmed. Waited few 5 or so mins and then
got the long key and their comments cool enough that I'll leave that open for while. Just have to wait bit longer than the initial letter or what super quick times one usually expects. But not like waiting half, full hour or nothing at all. Thanks GOTD & dev.

Folder Marker Home 4.3 just plain wouldn't work. Having built scores of computers and been a computer user for decades, I'm not unfamiliar with computers. I followed the instructions to a "t," but Folder Marker simply failed to change any folder icons in File explorer (Windows 10 Pro fully updated). Be forewarned, it does not work in the superb file manager Directory Opus.

Given the paucity of icons this freebie offers and the upsells in it, it's pretty clear this is a poorly executed come on to sell more icons and upgrade to the most expensive version of the product. Now I've got nothing against that, but at least the product should work.

I've had this on my PC before, it became quite useful.
In fact, if you're going to install this, you may as well go all the way, and also install another piece of freeware to actually mark individual files as well, which is supremely useful - you can find this at filemarker.net

Reply   |   Comment by goldpony  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

goldpony, Folder Marker : After I restarted my PC, I managed to change folder icons only when opening the software, and doing it from inside - I could not get the rightclick menu function to work.

That makes it practically useless - I will wait for another similar software called Folderico to be offered here, or perhaps see if they have a free limited version that does have working rightclick functionality.

As to the other software I referenced before (File Marker) - that simply wouldn't work, either from within the software or through rightclick.

I have run both these on my other PCs before this one, which now runs Win 8.1 Home 64 bit 2nd Ed - so it may be a setting inside Windows messing with the rightclick function, or other software running on my system.

If I manage to figure that out, I will post here again.

Something isn't working right in the registration process. I submitted my name and email, and signed up for the newsletter, since that has to be done to process the screen. I then went to the search encrypt page, but since I don't use Google Chrome, I couldn't follow their instructions to click on a Chrome icon, and nothing more was processed. I guess that I will wait and see if I get the email with the registration information. And yes, I do check my Spam folder daily.

According to their website:

System requirements


Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 or Windows 10.
x32 or x64 editions

on bottom right hand corner of page http://foldermarker.com/en/download/

There should be nothing windows 7 or better dependant on this type of windows user interface enhancment since all it does is organise its own database of custom icons and generate legacy desktop.ini files to customise folder icons on individual folders.
