Does any one know if this utility can change a group of folder icons at one shot? Lets say you wish to turn half the folder icons in one sub-folder from yellow to green.

Windows only allows you to change one folder icon at a time. You can not select just 5 or six folders and change only those selected ones at once.

Mark, there's "apply selected icon for all subfolders" option ticker box in the program. I have been using this program in my old machine and now that I have a new one, thanks for this giveaway. This is so far the only folder icon app that works in external and network drives.

Am I such a klutz that I can not register this program? Instructions say, "You may check the program registration by entering the program menu,
the "Register" option is supposed to disappear." I see no program menu. Honestly, I was not born yesterday. I do know how to press buttons. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

Curtiss Riedel, after you run "Activate" open the program. If you no longer see the "Register" option, you've successfully registered.

It's the same version number as the one I downloaded a couple of years ago,6.2.1.

Alan J Cassaro, are you sure it was a couple of YEARS ago and not several MONTHS ago March 7th 2019

One year ago June 1st 2018 the giveaway version was 5.1 not anywhere close to 6.* and the comments did not complain that we were being given an older than current version just that it was the same version that had been given away before a few times.

TK, I think I've had it for 3 or 4 years, the 6.2.1 version
Maybe I didn't get it from Giveaway of the Day..

Would be really amazing if these developers created a way to change the fonts and colors of the icon names - the text labels of desktop icons that MS took out of the OS so many years ago. And that people have been begging to have back, all this time, with no results.

Reply   |   Comment by Susanne Heron  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Susanne Heron, Heck I want an easy way to just delete the entire text box under my custom made icons I have for my desktop shortcuts. There are ways to do it but you are left with tiny - or _ that aren't as annoying but are still visible. And you are limited to 3 of each. Now that would be a very useful program for me.

LadyLei, Search for "how to make icon name invisible".
I did something like that years ago and it worked.

Reply   |   Comment by Mark  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Mark, Yeah I know about that but it only works if you have a numbers keyboard. It won't work using the numbers above the qwuerty keyboard. So you have to resort to the -&_ method which is what I have done for some. Thanks anyway. Still think someone should look into making a small prog to do this.

Reply   |   Comment by LadyLei  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

LadyLei, If you have Windows 10 you can use it's "on-screen-keyboard".

On other systems, you could use a "numeric keypad emulator".

Finally, many laptops address the lack of a number pad by including a hidden numeric keypad activated by the NumLock key. You might have to press Fn or the Shift key to get it to work.

Being a big fan of personalization myself, I hope you can use this information to get your icons to look the way you want.

Reply   |   Comment by Mark  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Mark,
Well I tried Win10 and after my experiences with that I wouldn't touch it again with a 20 foot pole. Have Win 7 Pro and will keep that.

NumLk doesn't work, tried that one.

I will check into the rest of your suggestions and hopefully one of those will work.

I customized most of my icons and with that I really find the text just spoils the look I like. Too much time on my retired hands probably LOL.

Thanks for thinking of me and my tiny problem!
