Editors' Review

Folder Colorizer for Windows from Softorino makes it easy to customize your Windows folders with just about any color.

Folder Colorizer, once installed, will add a Colorize option to your Windows Explorer context menu. The application is simple and easy to use. Just right click on the folder you want to colorize, and either choose from the default color options or access the Color circle and pick a custom color using your mouse. You follow the same easy steps to recolor a folder.

Folder Colorizer is a small, free program that makes it easy to jazz up your folders in just a few clicks. The application installs and uninstalls cleanly.

"Impossible to retrieve"

February 29, 2016  |  By jefdvs6

 |  Version: Folder Colorizer 1.4

Pros

None whatsoever

Cons

Malware distribution scam

Summary

Will not even let me download; router throws up "blocked for safety" message without end, and even if Google Chrome is programmed to skip over this sh*t, as is Windows itself.

Stay away.

"Nice, but not entirely convincing"

Pros

- It does really allow to change color of folders
- You can create custom colors
- Easy to use

Cons

- Unstable. Prone to crashing.
- Unless you do custom a install, and are install savvy, it installs crapware.
- In spite of Cnet's "clean uninstall" opinion it leaves a lot of stuff in machine. If installation has errors it's impossible to do a clean reinstallation to correct problems.

Summary

Folder Colorizer is a mixed bag. It does what it says and it does it with ease and elegance, although it doesn't make possible to use very color there actually is. But hey, there are a lot of them you can use. On the other hand it's full of crapware and the code is not very stable. I've had error dialogs appearing on several installations (I'm using it a couple of years now ) and boy are they annoying. If the installation fails and you get some nasty error windows you won't be able to correct the problem unless you do a manual uninstall and delete every line of code in the registry. Folder Colorizer can be a joy and quite useful or a nuisance, depending on your luck.
