In the ordinary world, we’re using markers, highlighting important documents or laying them out in folders of different colors. This allows us to be organized and quickly find the information we need. Why don’t we bring the same approach to our computer files world?

This is exactly what today’s deal software is doing. Folder Marker lets you add colors and/or images to Windows' folder icons. Seems trivial, right? Yet once you start using it, you'll wonder why Microsoft never bothered to incorporate such capabilities into Windows. It’s awesome.

Once you have installed Folder Marker, right-click the folder you want to customize. Go to “Mark Folder” item there, and click the icon you like. That is it!

Folder Marker Pro lets you distinguish between folders by assigning different colors, priorities, work status, or type of file, just in a single click of your mouse! Freed from the uniformity and blankness of yellow folders, you'll be able to tell, visually, what kind of files are in any folder that you've marked with Folder Marker Pro! On a basic level, you can assign folders to represent various types of files in your workflow. Then, you can mark folders by how high of a priority those files are, or by the level of completion of the work inside the folder!

    Pro edition has advanced features such as:
  • - ability to customize Network folders
  • - a backup feature, that allows you to restore your colorization after reinstalling your operating system or after migration to another computer.
  • - command-line work. This allows you to write your own script and automate marking of folders in your specific cases.
  • - ability to customize folder icons without changing its date. It is convenient if you sort your folders by dates.

If you've got some favorite icons in your arsenal, you can use them in conjunction with Folder Marker! Just select an icon (like a whimsical URGENT sign) in ICO, ICL, EXE, DLL, CPL, or BMP format, and use it to mark up your folders. And you won't be needing to mark folders one at a time, either -- Folder Marker Pro lets you work with several folders at once, or mark up subfolders.

Folder Marker Pro has 148 icon options built-in but with Numbered Folder Icons you get even more. The Numbered Folder Icons pack consists of 421 icons. Numbers from 0 to 99, Years from 2000 to 2030 and decades from '00s to '90s. And all icons are presented in three different colors: red, green and blue, so you can not only number your folders but also indicate its state using color. This folder icon pack is perfect for users working with catalogs, archives and other data collections that require quick access to deeply nested folders.

AL-M712 AL-M712 I've been using this program, despite a significant limitation that it unfortunately presents, that requires a work-around that is cumbersome and should not be necessary.

The problem / limitation with this program is that despite all of the colors; numbering, little symbols and such that can be added to folder icons through the program, it provides just one base folder design -- a vertical standing, open, file, as is seen in its video. This folder design is nothing at all like the traditional well-serving and effective horizontal folder design. In fact, the vertical standing small base folder design provided by Folder Marker does NOT serve to effectively visually distinguish folders / sub-folders from similar oriented and sized FILE icons when seen together in a folder containing files and sub folders. IMO, that is a severe limitation and a disappointment, given that I've communicated this matter to Folder Marker several months ago in response to one of their survey emails; however, there has been no response to it, nor any indication of wanting to add more and better basic folder designs through its appearances on this BDJ site or on its own site.

The workaround I employ to use and assign horizontal icons or of any other design through use of Folder Marker is to create and the icons myself in an icon-creation/editing program. I use the limited Folder Marker program ONLY for quickly assigning of my better made icons to folders, even multiples at a time, rather than by Windows' relatively complex way of doing so one folder at a time. In that regard, Folder Marke does provide a pretty good way of mass assigning of manually made icons to folders.

In balance, it is granted that this concern for visual differentiation applies by and large to those who may not care so much about all of the cutesie decorations of icons for effective visually discernment, so much as just wanting to decorate and color a few basic folder designs, beyond the Windows default nice but mono-color folder icon.

*** One final note: I've notice that folder icons in system restricted folders in Windows, such as User folders, Program Files, and others, cannot be reassigned. I'd love to find a way or a sofftware that could change even the Windows default icons!

Hopefully, the developers of Folder Marker will eventually take note and provide additional designs of base folder icons!

Roman, ArcticLine AL-M712, we are developing a new version now, that will have Windows11-designed icons included for all Windows 11 users. In Win11 folders are landscape-oriented. This version should be released this month.

Plus we are working on an icon editor, so there will be an option to create your own folders.

I.e. we hear ;)

AL-M712 Thank you, Roman. That's great news! I''m looking forward to upgrading / purchasing the upcoming version with the horizontal icons and to check out its icon editor too! I'm hoping that this new version will also work with Windows10.
