FolderMagic's sole function is to customize the appearance of folders in Windows, and it performs its function well.

The program features an easy-to-use interface that allows you to change both the color and the icon of your Windows folders. It is integrated with Windows, which allows for quick access via a right-click menu. You can change the appearance of folders or choose from several preloaded icons to help liven up default Windows folders. In terms of extras, you can opt not to share certain folders, and can add brief descriptions to each folder.

FolderMagic offers more options for customizing folders compared to Windows' built-in functions. Our only complaint is its 15-day trial period. However, users looking to spice up their folders will enjoy what FolderMagic has to offer.
