Serious lagging on windows 7, 64-bit 1 stars by brutallyblue Aug 01, 2012 (Read all my 8 reviews)
I'll start off by saying that once you've colored a folder with this program, it is vibrant and impossible to miss. You are given more than a dozen color choices. It's so easy to go right to a folder in explorer instead of scanning for it. That said, this program performed very poorly. Although it is supposed to be for Windows 7, it reacted like a much older program on a new operating system. Maybe I experienced this trouble because I am running the 64-bit version of Windows 7. When I first tried to use it, I clicked a button and there was about a minute or so of nothing, then Windows changed its status to "not responding". I was about to close it through the task menu when all of a sudden it came to life and colorized my folder. I figured it had to be a compatibility problem. So I tried several different settings and the one that worked best for me was Windows XP (Service Pack 3), and running it as the administrator. Even its best setting, when clicking the program, it did not respond for at least 45 seconds each time I selected a folder to color. Although the results were nice after each wait, it is too fussy and time-intensive for my taste. Additionally, this is one of just a handful of programs that I could not coax to work properly using compatibility settings. Hopefully a later release will solve the lags and non-responsiveness. show Review details
Excellent 5 stars by rjsl55362 Dec 21, 2011 (Read all my 6 reviews)
I tried it and it was easy to use. I already created my own custom folders and they look great. Also, the folders stay customized even if you remove the software, which is good. I hope that in the next version, one could customize multiple folders at the same time. show Review details

I have used this before and tired quickly of it because of its limitations. Upon removal of it it will leave "colored folders" behind that I am still dealing with. show Review details
