iColor Folder allows you to easily color code folders in your computer. Once installed you can right-click on any folder and assign a color to it. I have been using the software for some time now and find it very useful. I color the folders I use most often red so that they automatically grab my attention when browsing that directory, this really helps when you’ve got 60 folders in My Documents directory like I do. If you’d like to use the software you can download and try it for yourself. Comments/suggestions welcome.
