colorize your folders Rainbow Folders allows you to change the color of selected folder icons. You can use it to navigate your files more efficiently by setting specific colors for important folders, so they are easy to spot in Windows Explorer, open/save dialogs and anywhere else in the file system. In addition, you can also set an extra warning when someone is trying to delete colorized folder. Rainbow Folders works by modifying the Windows desktop.ini files and, once your folders are configured, there is no need to keep the program running unless you want to make changes to your folder colors.

Wonderful program! 5 stars by busybusy May 09, 2015 (Read all my 257 reviews)
This is a wonderful utility that seamlessly integrates into the explorer shell. I like the use of color verses changing the icons to some symbol which make folders easy to identify. show Review details
Pretty good mostly 3 stars by Wastrel Jul 01, 2009 (Read all my 17 reviews)
The program itself is pretty good. The only place it really comes up short is with the icons themselves for the larger/tile icons--no transparency (ragged edges). A more precise color picker might be nice. All in all, if you want "prettier" folder icons with different colors, then you can download icon sets or create them yourself (and create your own desktop.ini file for each folder). If you want a simple, free process for colorizing folder icons and you use the list/detail views instead of large/tile views, then you should like this program well enough. Otherwise, I'd suggest Folder Marker (shareware) or "roll your own" icons. show Review details
Just fun 5 stars by JMMannion Jan 10, 2009 (Read all my 25 reviews)
This little program brings a touch of class and pleasantry to a dull page of program folders. It is just fun to use. show Review details
