At work , I deal with lot of files stored in my local hard drives. And it’s very important for me to organize these files properly. So I would not do the same task – creating the same reports – over and over again.
But with so many folders and sub directories, it is virtually tiresome for me to search the right folder every time I open an Explorer Window.
However , with the help of these three freeware utilities, Now it’s quick and easy to find the right folder. Efficiency has increased 200%.
In the below image , the right column icons are all actual folders.
This utility lets you change the folder icon and its color. By default you are required to select the folder icon styles ( Aqua, Mac OS X, Vista , Windows XP) and you can change the color of the folder icon. Therefore, it helps me to distinguish each folder with different importances and classifications.
You can change the icon by right mouse click on the folder.
