If you have a whole bunch of folders on the desktop then it will be very difficult for you to find out a particular folder. Personally I have experienced this. So, what can be done to identify the folder. We can use a free software called “Folder colorizer” which can be downloaded from this website.

  • Install the software.
  • Now right click on any folder and select “colorize“.



  • You can see some default colors on the right side. You can click on it to change the color of the folder.
  • If you want to have more options for the color then click on “colors“.
  • Click on the colored circle to pick any other color.



  • Click on “Add color” button.
  • Now again double click on the newly added color.
  • The folder color will be changed.
  • If you want to restore the original color then again right click on the folder and select “colorize” and then click on “Restore original color“.


  • The folder will have its original color.
