Apps & Games content ratings on Softonic

Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family.

What do the ratings actually tell me?

Content ratings describe the minimum age we feel the content is suitable for. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app.

Where can I find the content ratings?

You will find the content ratings on every app or game page.

Why are some apps or games unrated?

If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.

Rating Systems

Softonic uses the rating systems by PEGI and ESRB. The ratings you see may vary by country or region.

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.

"Lovely while it lasted."

I loved it until it quit working. I've tried installing it many times, but when I choose it from the context menu, it only brings up the setup.exe file. Very sad to lose it.
