Folder Marker Pro is a folder icon changer specially designed for office work. This Windows add-on lets you label important folders with color-coded or image-coded icons in order to make them easier to spot among hundreds of similar-looking yellow folders. You can change folder icon to label them by priority (high, normal, low), project completeness level (done, half-done, planned), by work status (approved, rejected, pending), and type of information stored (work, important, temp and private files). Changed folder icons catch the eye and let you see the kind of information they contain before you read their names or open them.

  • Folder Marker Pro can label folders by priority (high, normal, low), by degree of work complete (done, half-done, planned), by work status (approved, rejected, pending) and by the type of the information contained in a folder (work files, important files, temp files, private files).
  • Folder Marker Pro can change a folder's color to normal, dark and light states
  • Folder Marker Pro changes folder icons from within a popup menu of the folders. To mark a folder, you don't even need to run the program!

Helps any user organize his workspace
A user having a ton of folders and files almost always wastes precious time searching for files and folders in his local hard drive. This especially tiresome when a user searched by way of "keywords" and "file names" and "tags". Having folders with distinct color or features helps the user spot "his" folders eliminating loss time. If a user organizes his folders say, color code's a certain section as "green" --identifying all green folders as "work images", or, assigning the color "purple" as --personal images / pictures, or, again assigning a "custom icon" to --all folder / sub-folders that pertains to "all computer software applications", then that in effect is and will definitely help him (the user) towards organizing his workspace (thus saving precious time) that is almost always wasted when searching tons of files and folders.

Adding Icons / Icon Sets
Folder Marker Pro permits the addition of icons from the internet in addition to the purchase of "icon sets" from Folder Marker home site (Additional icon sets can be purchased at http://foldermarker.com/en/additional-icons/) . The user can add the downloaded icons via Folder Icons > User Icons > Add > Select Icons (browse to the location of the icons) > click "OK" after which the icon will automatically appear in the User Icon space. 

Sites that offer icon / icon packages are Icons8 (icons8.com), DeviantArt (deviantart.com), Iconfinder (iconfinder.com), IconArchive (iconarchive.com), and Icon-Icons (icon-icons.com) to name a few. There are a lot of sources where a user can get "free icons" to supplement Folder Marker Pro. It's all over the internet! A user can also create from scratch his desired icons (via Paint, Photoshop or even PowerPoint) , save it in .PNG and upload it to "CONVERTICO" https://convertico.com/ where it will convert the .PNG files to icon files (.ico). The uploader / user can just download his converted .ico file for his use.  Note: Starting version 4.5, the user's .PNG file are directly converted to .ico files in Folder Marker Pro version.
 
[Image: 7-create-add-icons-to.gif]


A user is given the leeway to choose where to store additional icons/icon sets but Folder Marker advises that it be store in D:\Icons. This will add more order to things in the user's computer and will prevent accidental deleting of the downloaded icons. Plus, if user decides to reinstall his system or upgrade his computer in the future, he will know that he needs to copy D:\Icons to a new machine to save all custom icons for Folder Marker. This of course is just a suggestion and the user is always "king" in his own domain!





Change a folder icon to a custom icon
To do this, user just needs to select the desired folder to which he wants to change the existing icon and right-click > Mark Folder > select desired icon (presets) then click "Apply" to execute the change.

[Image: 11-change-folder-icon-to-custom-user-icon-3.gif]

[Image: 12-change-icon-to-built-in-main-icon.gif]


If a "user-installed-icon" or "custom icon" is desired, go to >More Icons.... From there the user just needs to go to the Folder Icons > select desired icon and click "Apply" to execute the change. The Folder icons given are (1) ABC, (2) Additional, (3) Colors, (4) Everyday10, (5) Main, (6) User Icon, and (7) Custom. User can also add more icons or icon sets he wants. 
 
How to change folder icon | Folder Marker
 
The 4.5 version of Folder Marker (use JPG/PNG as folder icons)




Color-code / Image-code Multiple Folders
The most easiest way to color-code (or image-code) multiple folders out rightly is to select all desired folders and drag-and-drop it in the "Folder Area" (folder space). Once all folders are "dropped" the user need only to select the folder icon desired and click "Apply" to execute changing of folder icon. 

Another method is to select the folders the user wants to change icons to then right-click > Mark Folder > select the desired icon (presets) or if a "user-installed-icon" go to >More Icons.... From there the user just needs to go to the Folder Icons > User Icons > select desired icon and click "Apply" to execute the change. To "restore" the old folder icons, the user need to right-click all the folders previously changed > Mark Folder > Restore Default.

How to use 'Backup customizing data' feature of Folder Marker

Folder Marker Home lets the user label folders with color-coded and image-coded icons with one mouse click, which makes them easy to find and retrieve. User simply selects the folder he wants to label, right-click on its icon, select a color-coded icon from the drop-down menu and the folder color changes at once! That simple!
 
[Image: install-Home.gif]

[Image: interface1.gif]

[Image: interface2.gif]

Users can take advantage of great customization flexibility. He (the user) can, for example, modify a right-click menu of a folder by adding new menu items and categories and assigning icons to them. Users are also given the ability to add new items to Folder Marker's icon set. Simply drop an ICL file to the appropriate folder and a new tab with folders from this file will appear. The user can choose to make folders, customized with Folder Marker Home, distributable. This means a color-coded icon remains unchanged even if the folder is copied onto a new computer or the system has been re-installed. Also, he (the user) can apply a selected icon to all sub-folders in a given folder.

"What features of Folder Marker Pro do you like best and why do you want to win a Folder Marker Pro license?"


I like the built-in colored folders and the way you can automatically convert image files to be icons. Of course you can do this manually but with Folder Marker it seems very easy. No effort at all! Just select and replace that's it! Very nice! I do not know of folder marking software until I saw this giveaway! They have a free version too with the colored folders I like! Usually I do not entertain thoughts of having to change folders look but when you get confused on what you are looking for well you get that feeling "I hope there's a better way to do this" --syndrome. I like to win Pro version so I can use pro features with the bonus of the Everyday Icon folders! VERY NICE FIND INDEED! Thanks for supporting our forum! Thanks jasonX for coming back!

I like the following features of Folder Marker Pro:-
  • Folder Marker Pro can change a folder's color to normal, dark and light states
  • Folder Marker Pro can label folders by priority (high, normal, low), by degree of work complete (done, half-done, planned), by work status (approved, rejected, pending) and by the type of the information contained in a folder (work files, important files, temp files, private files).
I want to win  a license to this app to mark my folders for easy and quick identification of folders and enhancing my productivity.

ENTRY#1

"What features of Folder Marker Pro do you like best and why do you want to win a Folder Marker Pro license?"

I have one TB hard disk in my laptop, which has a lot of folders That I have named, and I open all these folders by name. Using Folder Marker Pro makes it straightforward to open the desired folder recognizing it by color or folder icon in seconds without searching for their characters.

It can classify your favorite folders with color. It can separate work folders by giving them a unique color or icon. It is best to use for office work, making them easier to open and saving your time to relax.

Some features I like much are:
Change the Network folder icon. So you can customize your LAN
label folders by priority and work status
Changes folder icons from within a popup menu of the folders
User Icons tab
Apply selected icon to all subfolders
Backup customizing data
Restore customizing data
Rollback All Changes
Windows 11 support

It prevents accidental deleting of the downloaded media if you recognize your special and useless folders by color. The option to store additional icons/icon sets but Folder Marker in D:\Icons and later in future the ability to copy D:\Icons to a new machine make you BOSS of your domain. I like using JPG/PNG as folder icons. Lastly, I will mention its use in schools, especially for random office work, to make it easier.

Facebook share

Wishing you a happy new year at Arcticline Software.

"What features of Folder Marker Pro do you like best and why do you want to win a Folder Marker Pro license?"
I have not found a way to change default folder icon or changing icons for multiple folders at once, within Windows itself. Folder Marker makes it easy to change the default icon for every folder at once.
I would like to win Folder Marker Pro license to make my Explorer look better than now and to have a better and happier workflow.

Thanks for this and may the new year make you reach your goals!

The feature I like best is change folder icon to label them by priority, project completeness level, work status, and type of information stored.
With Folder Marker Pro, I want to change the monotonous default color of the system icons to make them look more colorful and comfortable. In addition . I intend to mark those important folders with different icons and colors so that I can find them at a glance among the large number of folders.  thank you a lot.

"What features of Folder Marker Pro do you like best and why do you want to win a Folder Marker Pro license?"

Folder Marker Pro allows you to organize your PC by using different icons to mark folders. This improves our productivity because we can quickly find the documents we need. The use of colours can be used to prioritise particular documents, or their status such as open, in progress, completed or their importance to the user. You can also create custom folders. 
I would like to win a licence for Folder Marker Pro to make working with documents easier by marking them up and identifying them quickly. Plus it's great fun to create custom folders.
