How many years have you spent looking at the same old boring yellow folder icons in Windows? Do you find yourself poring over dozens and dozens of yellow folders, scanning the tiny text underneath each one to find what you're looking for? Well, how would you like the astounding ability to customize the icons of Windows folders in just a single click? You can, with FolderIco!

FolderIco brings a bright and lively style to your Windows desktop and file management by giving you the power to change those standard yellow folders to a number of different, brilliant colors! With FolderIco, you'll not only get a bit of visual flare, you'll also be able to classify your files by color, letting you find important items faster.

Just think about how easy it would be to create a color-coded file system using FolderIco! Critically important files go into RED folders, marginally noteworthy items go into ORANGE folders. And if you finish one of those important documents in your red folder, you can move it into a GREEN folder to give yourself a sense of accomplishment, and a confirmation that you're done with it! Best of all, you can change the color of any file folder with a single right-click of the mouse!

FolderIco is taking the world by storm, and is accordingly available in the following languages: English, Russian, Romanian, French, Polish, German, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Greek, Danish, Swedish, Portuguese, Dutch, Hungarian, Italian, Arabic, and Czech!

This promotion includes the following:
FolderIco Personal ($19.95)

VLM Is this software integrated into anything other than Windows Explorer? For example, Directory Opus, Total Commander, ...?

Don Versluys I downloaded and installed today.
There is no .exe file to start Folder in C:/program files/folderico/.
Well, there is an exe file in there, the Uninstall.
I downloaded and installed from the email receipt and the url on your site.
How do I get this thing to execute?

Preston Mitchell Handy Utility for Those who Find Folders with Icons

I used FolderIco for over a year. It offers a very fast way of changing the plain manila icon for folders to an icon that stands out. It beats Windows native method for changing icons. And icons help me to find folders faster.

Icons are changed by highlighting a folder and using the right-click context menu. Fast & simple.

The only drawback is the number of icons is limited. And FolderIco offers no way of adding custom icons to its list.

Mark Johnson I just downloaded and installed.

@VLM - I use Directory Opus, and can confirm it works there. However, I also use Xplorer2, and it works there too. However, I notice that in Xplorer2 you have to manually refresh the view (or exit and restart) for the changed icon to appear.

@Don - open windows explorer, and right-click on a folder. You will see a new menu item 'Change Icon...'.

After playing around with it a bit I fail to see why this program is worth the asking price (even at half off). There are a very limited number of choices for icons available, and in Windows 7 it is easy to change folder icons to anything you want (without installing any software). Just google 'change folder icon in windows 7' and also google 'free icons'.

This program does make for a SLIGHTLY easier way to change folder icons than what is already provided in Windows 7. If it came with a large library of icons to choose from or allowed you to add your own (freely available) icons it would be more appealing.

Preston Mitchell @Mark W7's Native Method of Changing Icons is Faster???

What? Highlight folder - right click - properties - customize tab - change icon - browse - find your folder with icons - click OK - click apply - click OK...FINALLY DONE!

Yeah, W7's native method of changing icons is SO much faster.

But I agree that FolderIco is overpriced at $20...though a fair deal at $10

FolderIco works fine in Dopus 10.

Rania El Gazzar I've been using FolderIco (Free Virsion) for a long time now, it's a MUST HAVE program. You won't feel how useful it is unless you give it a try. I've been recomending it to friends, but sadly a lot think it's very expensive according to our currency 120.00LE (EGP). I have to check my net card to see if I'll be able to grab this deal.
