Reliable data protection and disaster recovery solution.

In the ordinary world, we’re using markers, highlighting important documents, or laying them out in folders of different colors. This allows us to be organized and quickly find the information we need. Why don’t we bring the same approach to our computer files world?

This is exactly what today’s deal software is doing. This folder colorizer tool lets you add colors and/or images to Windows' folder icons. Seems trivial, right? Yet once you start using it, you'll wonder why Microsoft never bothered to incorporate such capabilities into Windows. It’s awesome.

Once you have installed Folder Marker, right-click the folder you want to customize. Go to “Mark Folder” item there, and click the icon you like. That is it!

Key features:
* Can change a folder's color. For this purpose, you have 36 icons of normal, dark, and light colors.
* Has 50 image-coded icons build-in to indicate priority, degree of work complete, work status, and the type of information contained in a folder.
* Allows to sort & filter folders in Windows Explorer by assigned color- or image label.
* You can customize the 'Mark Folder' menu for your needs.
* Contains a User Icons tab where you can add an unlimited quantity of icons, downloaded from the Internet.
* Can make customized folders distributable (portable).

Can the program produce colored folders in both horizontal and vertical orientation?

Nemo, no, it uses the same style as the folders you have in your system. I.e. for Windows 7-10 you will see vertical folders, for Windows 11 and XP - horizontal

Been using the free Rainbow Folders for years. It doesn't have the "lettered" folders but it allows you to pick any color from the spectrum instead of just provided colors. Also shows up in a right-click menu for easy use and a quick undo choice for when you are done with temporarily marking a folder.

Roger, Rainbow Folders is a really basic alternative for Folder Marker. It has only basic functions and is not developed anymore.

I´m looking for a program that automatically changes the folder color once it has reached a certain size, selected by me.

Could anyone please clarify if it´s possible to do it using this program?

Thanks a lot.

Description above reads in part, “This folder colorizer tool lets you add colors and/or images to Windows' folder icons.” But at the program’s version compare site, it states the Home version doesn’t enable PNG and JPG images for folder labeling; only the Pro version does.

Buckley, Folder Marker has 2 options of folder customization:
Color-labeling and image-labeling.

Image-labeling means you can add a small image to a folder = F.ex. Arrow up for important files. The Home version can do this. You can download ICO files with image marks from the internet or buy the additional icons from the foldermarker.com

But if you would like to use PNG images as marks, yes you need Pro version for this

Buckley, I just installed the GOTD version this morning. It lets you add .ico, .icl (icon libraries) and .bmp files. I successfully added my own .ico file. I didn't try a .bmp.
