From the makers of Inpaint we have a new version of FolderIco. Please note this 3.0 version does not support XP. However the web site states XP users can still download and use version 2.o. Not sute if the activate.exe will work with this version.
You can download some free icon packs here…
Here are some screen shots…
Thank you GOTD team and TeoreX.Comment by dadams — November 17th, 2014 at 3:11 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+19) Reply
I’ve been using FolderIco for years and find it to be quite nice and useful little piece of software. It integrates itself in the right click menu so it's really easy to use. I think it works best if you don’t exaggerate with coloring every folder, because you will end up pretty much where you were. So, color the folders you use most frequently and/or by the content and you'll spot them much faster. In my experience, 4-5 different colors should be enough for average user (like myself). There are also many folder symbols you can choose from, but colors are much easier to spot. You can use it to mark the folders on external drives, as well. In that case, the application will put a small, hidden .ini file in the root, so be careful not to delete it when you are cleaning up that drive or all color settings will be gone (on that drive only).Comment by Yanco — November 17th, 2014 at 3:19 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+15) Reply
Sorry, I need confirmation. Does it mean if FolderIco is removed completely, the colored folders won’t be deleted, only the settings?
Phew, I thought this program was like another mac program and if it was removed all files that was affected get deleted too.Comment by ieatapps — November 17th, 2014 at 4:41 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)
Installed and registered without a problem on a Win 8.1.2 Pro 64 bit system.
A company without name and address. We had had version 2.0 on March 12, 2014. Here are the old reviews:
May I simply repeat?
This is done without problems. For those, who think that more colors in the folders means better organized, a good solution from a reliable producer (Theorex without name and address)
I prefer to give folders useful names, because in my age I simply forget, what was the reason for changing to red, green, blue, orange, azure, pink, violet, white or black and grey, and lemon or brown. And if I need different icon for high priority, normal priority or low priority folder, I have made something wrong in my task planning beforehand.
Uninstalled via reboot, after changing some directories to a full colored rainbow.
Did I mention, that you can do with your windows properties since ages?
Something to add…
Run the FolderIco.exe in the programs directory, if you want to change icons or add your own icons. You’ll find zillions of bad-to-excellent free icons on the web.
And I want to point to a simple, but usefull tool. Probably you know it. Doesn’t matter, I’ll give the picture for those, who don’t know about it:
A tool for monitoring changes in the files/folders
Try this FREEWARE program which is available as portable version also.
‘Shedko Folderico 4′ >> http://eng.softq.org/folderico
Folderico uses special format SFT as themes. These files are automatically associated with the program and are fully-processed.
Folderico also support to use ICL-files and themes from iColorFolder.
Get more themes for Folderico from http://eng.softq.org/folderico/themes
Well, I’m confused. I have Folderico Vs. 220.127.116.11, and it’s copyright 2005 – 2012 by Shedko Software (Belarus.) I somehow got this program “free” just a year ago yesterday (it wasn’t a GOTD offering.)
I run Win 7 64x, and I have two other “folder icon” programs installed, but my verion of Folderico is my favorite by far. One of the features I like best is how quickly I can brighten up folders – it does it’s magic very quickly with lots of color and other options.
I’m still confused as to how two compnies with different names seem to have software of the same name. With that said, if the program offered here today works like the one I have, I can highly recommend it.Comment by Powder_Skier — November 17th, 2014 at 3:40 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4) Reply

Don't you know that a lot of people really hate Windows Explorer? These people use file managers like FAR, Total Commander, FreeCommander, etc. I am one of them.Comment by Vladimir — November 17th, 2014 at 3:43 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-10) Reply
Pretty decent and handy tool today, especially if you love to keep your stuff organized and are used to classify your files by folders.
Personally I use another smarter technique to do that (oh yeah, Folders are just a memory of the past for me), but for what it does this GAOTD deserves a THUMBS UP!!
However, “Shedko Folderico 4 RC12″ does even more for FREE:
That being said, WINDOWS already provides a massive range of icons (right-click on any folder, go to Properties, click on the Customize tab and then the Change Icon button to access the different icon available).
Don't like Windows icons?? OK, no problem…
P.S. Hey Dadams, why the heck are you still using XP? Do you like the idea to have your system “doors” opened to hackers? I think you are the only one here to do use it yet! Be careful man while surfing!Comment by Giovanni — November 17th, 2014 at 4:22 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2) Reply
A lot of people still use XP, which happens to be immune to the latest zero day virus being circulated (targeted at Vista and above). XP is stable, works well, doesn’t require major hardware updates, and doesn’t require hundreds of dollars in software, hardware, and retraining costs. These all sound like great reasons not to update just yet.Comment by Brian S Wilson — November 17th, 2014 at 4:59 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+9)
There are features in Win XP that either aren’t available in Win 7/8, or are downgraded severely(e.g. Virtual Screen Manager). Win 7 is no longer being sold, and Win 8.X has not been widely accepted (certainly not in the business world). Let’s hope Win 10 does better.
Changing Folder Icons: Giovanni, the idiots responsible for Microsoft Windows 7′s ridiculous Libraries actually made it a lot harder for ‘ordinary’ computer users to do what you suggest.
GOTDers reading your note may find themselves baffled when they right-click a folder to customize it . . . only there isn’t a ‘customize’ tab there.
What they should do is go to any folder they like in Windows Explorer, right-click on it and then immediately click on the menu entry ‘Open Folder Location’. That will then open up the real folder and not the daft library entry. Right-clicking for ‘Properties’ will now show the ‘Customize’ tab.
I’ve tried Folderico before and it does what it says but prefer to stick to the Windows icons by way of changing the folder appearances for Audio, Video, and Images. All folders on any of my computers are always titled / displayed alphanumerically anyway, beginning at 001 Personal and ranked in order of usage from most frequent to little used: color changes aren’t necessary.Comment by MikeR — November 17th, 2014 at 5:21 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)
Still 16% use XP.
As mentioned in a previous comment I would spend more time wondering what the colour meant that it would save me.:-)
@Powder Skier: What are you confused? That are two different companies but there programs has the same name. What is the problem?Comment by noproblem — November 17th, 2014 at 4:41 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-4) Reply
Word of caution. This will not install on Win XP. Not cool!Comment by Brian S Wilson — November 17th, 2014 at 4:56 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1) Reply
It doesn’t like (can’t do in other words) icons in Program files, Windows folder – when is Folder Marker up again ?Comment by Phil K — November 17th, 2014 at 5:07 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1) Reply
Although I have no doubt this would be a useful program I prefer to make my own Icons in Photoshop, I have all sorts of them. Book ones for books ( strangely ) and camera Icons for photos. There’s plenty of websites where you can download whole sets for free if you wish to, and changing the icon on a folder is as easy as it gets. And you can edit them as you like in photoshop as well.Comment by Ian — November 17th, 2014 at 5:20 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0) Reply
Any word on if there is a way to install and activate the FolderIco v2 which stills installs to Windows XP?Comment by Bruce — November 17th, 2014 at 5:26 am Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0) Reply
