Now when you go to the location of the folder you will notice the change that was selected.

If you don’t find something you like with the default themes they also offer several other user made themes to download.

After you download the new theme folder just move the file with the “.icl” extension into the Samples folder where Folderico is installed.

Folderico also integrates in with the context menu so you can Right-click and quickly select a color or style.

The default language for Folderico is English but there are several more to choose from and even more you can download online.

If you are looking for a way to color code your folders or spice up the look and feel of the folders, Folderico is free and easy to use.
