    Pretty freaking cool!

    Although it seems to not show folder items when you change colors...

    Here's another 1 been using for years. It expands on options a little bit by allowing you icons or color but not both. Maybe both is possible with paid version.
    Not necessary to pay for full version as personal user. Only for use as a business or to get more icons.

    Nice, but will stick to changing folders to icons that match what the folder is holding. Makes the File Explorer look a little nicer.

    Looks are in the eye of the beholder.
    Primarily I only customize personally created folders & subfolders or certain subfolders inside a program folder for quick reference.
    If the folder is built with an icon I will not alter it. If an icon is packed inside I will right click properties customize and use it.

    Personally, I think it's awesome that ninelives found Folder Colorizer & thought it neat enough to share.
    I may be wrong again but, I think just about everyone who knows how to navigate explorer folders has thought about personalizing the default manila folder icon. There are exceptions to every rule.

    My first experience with coloring folders was 'Rainbow Folders' mentioned on MSN ComputerHelpClub Tips & Tricks board.
    Someone else then mentioned 'FolderIcon'. Another member mentioned 'Folder Marker'. More were mentioned.

    Which is why I mentioned a 'Tips & Tricks' forum here in another thread. With a negative reaction.
