Hi, how are you? Today we will continue to see how to customize the graphical aspect of Windows 10. Specifically, the folders. Personally, I love giving a personal touch to the devices I use. This includes themes, wallpaper, mouse pointer and of course, folders. Also, customizing a folder makes it easier to locate it. Well, in this post we will detail the process to customize the look of the folders in Windows 10.
How to change the color of the folders.
For a simple modification, just change the color of the folder. Unfortunately, Windows 10 does not allow you to make this modification natively. But don’t worry, I recommend the Folder Painter application. This is a third party, free program that changes the color of the folders in Windows 10. It also integrates perfectly into the context menu. Well, once you’ve downloaded and decompressed the file, you just have to run it. Then click on Install to add the option to the context menu.
Once the option is added to the context menu, just right click on the selected folder. From this moment you can choose the color of the folder, keep the Windows icon or open the program preferences.
After accepting the changes you can see the folder with the new color.
Change the folder icon.
The newly installed application has the option to change the default Windows icon. Just add the corresponding icon package and then install it.
Thereupon, When you right click on the folder, you will see the option to change the icon.
The folder icon is then updated with the new icon.
Changing the folder icon from Windows
On the other hand, it is possible to perform the procedure using Windows 10 itself. With this intention, enter the Windows Explorer by pressing the Win+E combination. Then select the folder and enter the properties by right clicking on it.
Then go to the Personalization tab. And from there click on Change icon
A window with the available icons will be displayed immediately. You just have to choose any of them. Also, if the list is not enough for you, you can browse to select any icon you have downloaded.
Back to the file browser, the folder icon will now be updated.
In the final analysis we have seen how to customize the look of the folders in Windows 10. This allows you to organize the folders by color to facilitate the organization. In addition, fans of personalization will love it. All right, that’s it for now. Bye
