Editors' Review

While this program lets you change the appearance of the folders on your system, it's certainly nothing to write home about. FolderHighlight doesn't have, nor does it need, an interface. You'll simply right-click on any of your folders, within opened windows or on your desktop, then select the program's name on the menu presented.

From there you can choose from one of six colors, including the standard default yellow, or you can select one of the three custom icons to further categorize folders. Though this simple utility could use some additional icon images, color palettes, and overall features, we suppose it could prove beneficial to anyone bogged down with numerous folders.
