Windows folder comes with only one color. If you use a lot of folder on your OS, then you might find difficulty in identifying the particular folder that you access regularly. Sometimes we want to distinguish that folder with all other folders for easier identification. Here is a software called Folder Colorizer which helps in adding color to your folders on windows operating system.

Folder Colorizer

One of the best and free software to add color to your folder. As this is a free software, it tries to install other software during installation. Make sure uncheck them during installation.

Here is the screenshot where you need to uncheck to prevent other software installation. Please note, I’m using Version. 1.3.2. In upcoming version developer might add even more software to it. So carefully watch instructions during installation.

The added color stays even after removing the software. If you wish to restore or remove folder color to an original color, then choose Restore original color option.

You can also add or delete colors to that list by going to Colorize!>> Colors…

When you add color to folder you may find some delay in showing that color on folder. Sometimes you need to refresh that window to see changes.

This is the only software which is free and supports all windows O.S. There are few paid software are available to add color to folder, but I’m not listing those here. I guess this free solution is enough for adding color to your folders.

Supported O.S:  Windows 8/7/Vista/XP
