Software Product Description

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. Why is this necessary? Mainly to boost yours computer usage speed & skills.

When youīre exploring a directory which contains lots of subdirectories in Windows Explorer you can easily commit a mistake, e.g. by clicking the folderīs icon which has a similar name to the one you really wanted to go to. With the folders marked with the colors of your choosing, you wonīt make any mistake and after some time youīll be clicking the right folders by impulse.

For example, you can use RF to mark subdirectory TEMP inside C:\WINDOWS\. Then after going to the system dir you wonīt be searching the TEMP dir on the whole screen, but at the start you will click e.g. the eye attacking bloody red folder. And now the best part: you can colorize an unlimited number of folders - each into a different color. So you can e.g. colorize all important folders red, then colorize all frequently visited folders to 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 everything you can do with help of RF, you can also set an extra warning when someone tries to delete a colorized folder, and optional text that will īpop upī when the cursor stops above the folderīs icon for a while.

Pros:  Easy to use

Cons:  More color variation including black would be nice but really this is only minor.

Other Thoughts:  Really nice tool. Its nice to color the folders and also helps to classify groups of folders throughout your computer. Thanks
