  • If you have tried it for some time (up to one week) and you like it - you should register it by sending the programmer a postcard of your city.

Rainbow Folders (RF) is an easy to use program, which allows you to change the color of the icon representing a chosen folder to any color you like. What for? Mainly to boost yours computer usage speed & skills. When you're exploring a directory which contains lots of subdirectories in Windows Explorer you can easily commit a mistake, e.g. by clicking on a folder's icon which has a similar name to the one you really wanted. With the folders marked with different colors of your choice you won't make any mistakes and after some time you'll be clicking the right folders by impulse.

You can colorize an unlimited number of folders - each into a different color. So you could, for example, color all important folders red, all frequently visited folders green etc. Also the effect of colorizing folders is not only visible in Explorer but in whole system, so also in any directory selection tree, and open/save dialog in any Windows application. But changing colors is not the only thing you can do with RF, you can also set an extra warning when someone tries to delete a colorized folder, and optional text that will 'pop up' when the cursor stops above the folder's icon for a while.

"Excellent Software and highly recomended!"

Tried all sorts of folder color programs, this is by far the best and is easy to use.

The paid Folder Marker version is useless, do not pay for it. As soon they have a new version you are not able to install any previous versions of there Software. Be aware do not purchase Folder Marker.

Rainbow Folders is top notch!

Hopefully the developer updates this excellent program. Cheers
