Great little program... but one major flaw. If you try to use a backup, a sync program, replicator, etc. to move folders from one place to the other, the colored folder does not follow. The ico file is still there and even if you manually unhide and copy the ini files... the folder is a standard boring yellow folder. Only way to maintain the folderico attributes is a drag and drop copy.

I tried it. I'm using Windows 7. I unpacked it, put all four files in a folder, ran the install program and the activate program. It said it activated. But the program does not work. I've tried to change four desktop icons in turn, each time the entire desk top blinked but the icon did not change.

I saw MikeR's instructions above. Now, the folders that FolderIco won't change on my desktop actually live on my desktop; they aren't shortcuts. Nevertheless I opened the Desktop FOLDER and tried to change them and they still don't change.

2) Also, your link and others indicate the hack might bring in 900+ old updates - did that happen?
3) Any advice not in your link story?
Thanks very much - might try this weekend on an old test machine.

Help please TeoreX....changed icon...worked fine but decided I wanted a different one (Using Cats)...restored it to default....worked fine but chosing a different Cat icon seemed to allow it but when done it went back to original cat icon. Will not let me choose a different icon now except for default.....can you fix this????? ...thank you....Unruly

Hi, just a thought, if it's not a System Folder (I would be v.carefull messing with them) - create New Folder, move everything from that 'cat folder' to it, delete the other empty one and try changing icon to one You like?

Another thing I've notticed - trying to change icons on shortcuts on Desktop only - doesn't show any difference, but locating that Folder, creating NEW shortcut to Desktop and deleting the previous one works!
Also, if I intend to change colour, or simbol of icons using FolderIco - I don't bother with 'restoring to default' prior to that. Good luck.

Well seriously didn't even bothered to download this one back in the days when I wan running Win XP, and for some time period Win 7. But after upgrading to Win 8.1 just thought of giving this a try. And I was taken for a surprise. Downloaded, Installed and Activated successfully. Easy to change the folder color and also restoring to default color. Good for indicating some folders with color with colors instead of naming it straightly.

And yeah by the way stop using XP and get upgraded to 8.1

Hi, FolderIco is indeed, as described, a very light software and simple little alternative 'pony' to.. oh, entire world of icons, themes, styles a.s.o. If (like me) you're done with it all these days:) - go for it! Makes life so much easier when at least handful of icons have different colours that can be further changed at the touch of a mouse (in practice thou, once appointed - kept to avoid confusion)

For those who like other possibilities, or cannot use FolderIco - this site might be of interest: http://www.guimods.com/ (my McAfee tells me it's safe)
Thanks GOTD and Teorex for this newest Version of FolderIco. Lovely Gift, recommended.

Some time ago a very arrogant and rude commenter, who also pretended to be a Guru about things of which he knew nothing, would berate anyone who used XP.
When you don't know the reasons for a person's choice, surely it is best to let them enjoy that freedom rather than to try to dictate.

I have asked this question before for giveaways of this type of programme but so far there have been no answers. Does anyone know of a programme which also shows when the newly coloured folder is both open and closed? In the case of the programmes that I know about, the change in colour always fixes the folder as closed so, although the colour change makes the folder more visible,
more effort is needed to see which folder is open.

You guys with XP need to move on. Don't thumbs down a nice program just because it won't run on your XP box. I could spend weeks giving 1 start to apps that won't run on my Gen1 iPod touch running OS3.01 but that's the nature of the beast. If that was the case, we would all still be running Windows 98se and our servers would be on NT3.51. Just some thought.

I have just decommissioned two turn-of-the-century desktop PCs, downloaded my data and expunged the residue from my 36GB hard discs. Sad at the loss of working Win98SE systems but admit that 3TB hard discs on my Win 7 SP1 PC have storage advantages, if nothing else.
Oh, yes. Today's Giveaway is great for doing what it says on the tin. However, there is freeware in the marketplace that is actually better, so we should encourage the company to improve the functionality of the product so that we have a good reason to pay for it - even though the price is very reasonable.

I too like this program, and regularly use it to indicate the status of project folders I am working with.

The only flaw seems to me that it does not, unlike Windows, change the folder icon to display whether or not the folder is empty or has some contents. The way Windows does this is actually useful to me, but the color changing of this program is useful enough to be worthwhile. 5 stars if it also gave a little preview of contents. For now, not so many stars.

Although I have no doubt this would be a useful program I prefer to make my own Icons in Photoshop, I have all sorts of them. Book ones for books ( strangely ) and camera Icons for photos. There's plenty of websites where you can download whole sets for free if you wish to, and changing the icon on a folder is as easy as it gets. And you can edit them as you like in photoshop as well.

The problem is often that somente is trying to use a well-known name in order to sell a different and maybe inferior programme because the code is different. I remember reading something about a dispute between these two companies and you will notice that one of them has a double name that distinguishes it from the one with the single name.
I'd also like to suggest that you ask a question when you don't know something instead o trying to intimidate by the aggressive way you ask your "question"

Pretty decent and handy tool today, especially if you love to keep your stuff organized and are used to classify your files by folders.

Personally I use another smarter technique to do that (oh yeah, Folders are just a memory of the past for me), but for what it does this GAOTD deserves a THUMBS UP!!

However, "Shedko Folderico 4 RC12" does even more for FREE:

http://eng.softq.org/folderico

That being said, WINDOWS already provides a massive range of icons (right-click on any folder, go to Properties, click on the Customize tab and then the Change Icon button to access the different icon available).

Don’t like Windows icons?? OK, no problem...

A lot of people still use XP, which happens to be immune to the latest zero day virus being circulated (targeted at Vista and above). XP is stable, works well, doesn't require major hardware updates, and doesn't require hundreds of dollars in software, hardware, and retraining costs. These all sound like great reasons not to update just yet.

P.S.
There are features in Win XP that either aren't available in Win 7/8, or are downgraded severely(e.g. Virtual Screen Manager). Win 7 is no longer being sold, and Win 8.X has not been widely accepted (certainly not in the business world). Let's hope Win 10 does better.

Changing Folder Icons: Giovanni, the idiots responsible for Microsoft Windows 7's ridiculous Libraries actually made it a lot harder for 'ordinary' computer users to do what you suggest.

GOTDers reading your note may find themselves baffled when they right-click a folder to customize it . . . only there isn't a 'customize' tab there.

What they should do is go to any folder they like in Windows Explorer, right-click on it and then immediately click on the menu entry 'Open Folder Location'. That will then open up the real folder and not the daft library entry. Right-clicking for 'Properties' will now show the 'Customize' tab.

I've tried Folderico before and it does what it says but prefer to stick to the Windows icons by way of changing the folder appearances for Audio, Video, and Images. All folders on any of my computers are always titled / displayed alphanumerically anyway, beginning at 001 Personal and ranked in order of usage from most frequent to little used: color changes aren't necessary.

Giovanni: an unprotected XP is indeed open to hackers. Any unprotected OS is. The scare-mongering about XP is just that: a lot of folks trying to frighten a lot of other folks for no good reason that I've yet found. But XP users aren't stupid. They know how to protect their systems. And Microsoft continues to wheel out security updates for XP. Yes, it's an out-dated OS nowadays but still easy to live with. All that's necessary to protect it is to run three free programs in tandem: WinPatrol, Malwarebytes, and PandaCloud. All three are light. All three cost nothing. And all three do what Microsoft really didn't want anyone to do: keep Windows XP going.

MikeR: People who feel complacent and safe with XP are a hackers dream. I completed a Ethical Hackers" known as "system security" (it was just 1 of 3 security classes)class at a local college and I can assure you, XP is as easy to break into as a Win7 machine. For my groups final, we used a XP, Win7, W2K8r2, Fedora and the attack machine, Backtrack (aka Kali). All were penetrable. But then again, you can lock Win7 down tight to the point it's useless and be secure. That applies to any OS. Just ask those Apple folks. Regards

I LOVE my XP system. It's where I do all my serious work . . . with my hundreds of applications that won't work on my Win7 machine. Vulnerable? OK, if you say so. I use an antivirus and I'm careful where I go online and I backup my whole system regularly to two different external hard drives. I'm rather enjoying Microsoft's absence. Their so-called updates more often screwed things up than fixed anything.

BTW, it takes my XP machine about 5 seconds longer to boot up than it's WIN7 sister. Everything else, the XP computer is faster, so much less irritating, and so wonderfully customizable.

As for FolderIco, I have an older version, so no need to download this one, but I don't like it nearly so well as another old app, FolderMagic, which I use to color and perk up my icons.

I will be ignoring Windows8 as best I can and, from what I've seen so far, Windows 10.

I guess every OS is a stepping stone to the next. Go back and see what XP was suppose to do and you will see the birth of improvements of Server 2003, then 2008 was the big brother to Win7 just like server 2012 is to win8... We run XP here on campus for ONE reason and one REASON only. In the book store on the cash register. That's the ONLY place. Not because it's superior to anything out there, just because the software they run only works on XP and the department is too darn cheap to get the new software to run on Win7. This software only works on a specific OS's for a reason. And that reason can be traced back to the TI99/4A and Commodore 64 days. I'll let some sit back and think about that for a minute. Good app for those who like to dress up your desktop. I'm sure there is someone in a basement coding one right now that will work on an XP machine.

Primary reason I still use Windows XP Pro is the older software I have that I cannot replace. That and the older hardware such as printers, scanner etc. that will not work with the new operating systems. If the older software, numerous projects and older hardware I have would still work then obviously I would have replaced the operating system long ago. Being retired on a limited income makes my options limited.

Well, I'm confused. I have Folderico Vs. 4.0.0.12, and it's copyright 2005 - 2012 by Shedko Software (Belarus.) I somehow got this program "free" just a year ago yesterday (it wasn't a GOTD offering.)

I run Win 7 64x, and I have two other "folder icon" programs installed, but my verion of Folderico is my favorite by far. One of the features I like best is how quickly I can brighten up folders - it does it's magic very quickly with lots of color and other options.

I'm still confused as to how two compnies with different names seem to have software of the same name. With that said, if the program offered here today works like the one I have, I can highly recommend it.

Installed and registered without a problem on a Win 8.1.2 Pro 64 bit system.

A company without name and address. We had had version 2.0 on March 12, 2014. Here are the old reviews:

May I simply repeat?

This is done without problems. For those, who think that more colors in the folders means better organized, a good solution from a reliable producer (Theorex without name and address)

I prefer to give folders useful names, because in my age I simply forget, what was the reason for changing to red, green, blue, orange, azure, pink, violet, white or black and grey, and lemon or brown. And if I need different icon for high priority, normal priority or low priority folder, I have made something wrong in my task planning beforehand.

Uninstalled via reboot, after changing some directories to a full colored rainbow.

Did I mention, that you can do with your windows properties since ages?


Something to add...

Run the FolderIco.exe in the programs directory, if you want to change icons or add your own icons. You'll find zillions of bad-to-excellent free icons on the web.

And I want to point to a simple, but usefull tool. Probably you know it. Doesn't matter, I'll give the picture for those, who don't know about it:

A tool for monitoring changes in the files/folders

I've been using FolderIco for years and find it to be quite nice and useful little piece of software. It integrates itself in the right click menu so it’s really easy to use. I think it works best if you don't exaggerate with coloring every folder, because you will end up pretty much where you were. So, color the folders you use most frequently and/or by the content and you’ll spot them much faster. In my experience, 4-5 different colors should be enough for average user (like myself). There are also many folder symbols you can choose from, but colors are much easier to spot. You can use it to mark the folders on external drives, as well. In that case, the application will put a small, hidden .ini file in the root, so be careful not to delete it when you are cleaning up that drive or all color settings will be gone (on that drive only).

Sorry, I need confirmation. Does it mean if FolderIco is removed completely, the colored folders won't be deleted, only the settings?

Phew, I thought this program was like another mac program and if it was removed all files that was affected get deleted too.

I do use this program for some time.
When I copy a folder/map to a USB-stick and use the stick on another Windows the color's are still in action.
Because the necessary files are in the folder itself, hidden: folder.ico and desktop.ini

I did check the program and it did not work on WinXP.
Also i did not work with a USB-stick with color's, made by Foldericon on Win7.
There is a difference between Xp and 7:

From the makers of Inpaint we have a new version of FolderIco. Please note this 3.0 version does not support XP. However the web site states XP users can still download and use version 2.o. Not sute if the activate.exe will work with this version.

You can download some free icon packs here...
