    Folder icon colors

    The Macintosh computer has a feature that lets you change the color of individual folder icons. Do you know how, or if, this can be done on a Windows PC?

    Re: Folder icon colors

    It depends to some degree on the version of Windows that you are using. XP allows you to customize each folder separately, and you can do more than choose a color, you can use an icon instead. With all other versions, I've found I have a liking for a nifty little program called E-icons that allows you to manipulate Windows shell icons. You can't specify an icon for an individual folder, unless it is a "shell folder" - Favorites, My Documents, History, etc - but you can make Windows look a lot better. And if you are going to spend any amount of time staring at the computer screen, it may as well be aesthetically pleasing, yes?

    Thanks for the reply. I like the Mac's folder icon coloring feature -- it lets you prioritize your work. Too bad the earlier versions of Windows doesn't have this.
