Change Folder Icon Color Or Add Custom Icons In Windows

Do you want to change the icon color of different folders in Windows? Or maybe you have made some custom icons and would like to apply it on different folders? If you want to better organize your folders by changing their colors or by adding your custom icon, then all you need is useful little software called Folder Marker. It supports 32-bit icons, and can work with several folders at once.

Simply launch the program, choose the folder whose icon you would like to change and then choose the icons from the Colors tab, Main tab, and User’s Icons tab.

You can choose from up to 11 different colors from Colors tab, you can also mark your folders by priority, degree of work complete, and the type of information it contains by going to Main tab. If you have created a custom icon, go to User’s Icon and select the icon which you would like to apply to the folder.

Another great way to change the folder icon is to right-click any folder and select Mark Folder, and then from here you can set any option that you like.

  1. Well, I’ve been using FM for about two years now, and i can say that this is pretty friendly software which works properly.
    Dunno what you guys are complaining about,

  2. There is this program called “FolderChanger” that does work well on all platforms – XP, Vista, and Windows 7.

    It helped me much. Not only it can color folder, but it can change the folder with my photo. Amazing! Got it from http://www.folderchanger.com

  3. This is a RIP! the free app does nothing, then they built a notifier in the app to get you to upgrade to the PRO version. Its a shame people LIE to you so much!

  4. Right click option does not work for me with Windows 7. Pretty expensive ($35) for a program that's not Win7 friendly yet.
