    When I tried to expand the .zip file, I got a message that the file was corrupt. I later found that I could extract the files individually. I installed and activated it, but now when I try to rum it, a process shows in the task manager, but nothing appears on the activity bar, the icon tray or the screen. A total waste of time and effort.

    I've been using this program (version 1.6) since it was last offered here, and I like it. I've found it to be helpful because I do keep a cluttered desktop (despite separate sections delineated via the "Fences" app.) Anything that helps me find things faster is a blessing for me!

    I installed and registered the programme and it is running in my system tray. However the entry is not showing in the context menu when I right click a folder. I have raised a ticket but wondered if others have this issue (windows 10 fully updated)

    I don't understand the appeal of these things. Don't people read anymore, If I want to distinguish folders that go together I use main folders and sub folders. And when did Directories become Folders.

    Reply   |   Comment by rww  –  26 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

    rww, My guess is directories became folders with the iconisation of file browsers where the standard icon for a directory file system object became a small picture of a folder... and people called it what they saw, a folder, and not what it was originaly called in MS-DOS/PC-DOS/unix and folders has less syllables so in todays lazy time and effort restrained world is quicker and easier to say and write.

    TK,

    Personally I think it has more to do with Windows (Microsoft) thinking new users cannot understand computer specific terms so everything had to relate to an old fashioned office and desk which is why the computer screen became a "desktop" and directories became file folders.

    Reply   |   Comment by rww  –  26 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

    rww, I use main folders and sub-folders too, but here is why these "things" appeal to me. I have tons of folders, tons of files, and I am adding to them every day. When I need to dig through a certain directory (folder) in the search for a specific file, a folder in the color red (for instance) immediately jumps out at me, and I begin my search there, where I likely have several more folders in various colors that hold files specific to a certain book, or theme, or research paper.

    Also, I like pretty things.

    I did try this particular application recently. It didn't - in my opinion - fulfill its promise. I currently use Folder Magic and Rainbow folders - both free.

    I have used this basic level program before. I find that the colors help me focus quickly on what shortcut folder I want to focus on, or which sub folders, when I change their colors by content or date, such as year or topic.

    Rick_S, this is actually a trick developers like myself use to train users by color coordination. Of IT had to give it a name and its called Mind-Mapping. Development trick to get users to follow a certain path in an application. I use it for client/server application development.

    DEBUG, I retired from IT in 2004. I know that colors were used before then. Thank you for giving it a name, i.e. mind mapping.

    I accept the normal blank folder icon doesn't really help, in terms of knowing which folder contains more valuable data! But if that same folder is given some icon. It is readily and easily memorized by the brain.
    But i don't want some 40MB file do that for me.
    I simply change the icon of the folder by the default Properties and Customizing and changing the icon. It helps me.
    Won't be downloading this.

    Snakeman, Thank you. Just put clef sign on music folder. Simple enough.

    Snakeman, I think you'll find a large portion of that "40Mbyte" is custom icon content and not all just bloatware programming if you bothered to download it and look. If you do not want or need custom icon content you likely do not want or need this type of program since if you want to customise a folders icon to a custom static icon you can do it all yourself with many graphics editors and windows own folder change icon controls.

    Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  26 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

    TK, i agree with you! A large portion would comprise of icon content rather than programming. And i do deny or challenge that, since i do not know programming of any nature besides good old batch files.
    But just check my notification bar:

    I really just want a clean pc and a less memory restrained system. Why fix it when its not broken.

    TK, I was wrong... the program files folder contains no customisable icon resources... and the program does not even allow for cusomised icon use just the built in plain coloured icons... It IS bloatware with the installed program files folder being 75.5MByte in size most of which are "Developer Express Incorporated" support libraries in multiple languages taking up around 51MBytes alone and some microsoft support DLLs. The custom icons are stored inside a small 4.9MByte sqlite3 database file as PNG files embeded inside SVG containers.
