Editors' Review

Whether you're just sick of always seeing the same yellow color on your Windows folders or you want to organize your folders to make things easier to find, this free application from Softorino makes it easy to customize your 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.

"Works, but ..."

February 21, 2014  |  By Tryumph

 |  Version: Folder Colorizer 1.3.1

Pros

Installed on Windows 7, 64-bit:

--great idea and it did colorize all folders that I tried, but very slowly, and color didn't always show up until the window was redrawn.

Cons

--likeliest cause of frequent Windows Explorer crashes.

--definite cause of frequent Word 2007 crashes when trying to save Word files. (When troubleshooting Word crashes, MS suggests that add-ons are the frequent cause. While this is NOT a Word add-on, World evidently uses the Explorer process to navigate while saving, and since the colorized folders show up with their colors, I think Colorizer is the problem.) After removing Colorizer (which for some reason didn't show up in Revo Un-Install, although the Glary Utilities installer found it), Word IMMEDIATELY stopped crashing.

Summary

great idea but flawed execution. Might work better on older system software (e.g. Windows XP)?
