Hi Joecool99,

I don't know of a way to color code file folders in a directory, unfortunately. Have you checked for general library maintenance and best practices? I'd be happy to look around and see if I can find some useful resources for ya.

This is an interesting idea though. I'll be sure to pass it along to the rest of the Windows team.

Let me know if you'd like help looking for some file structuring and organization ideas.

Cheers,
Kim

On MAC this existed many years, simple R click on file or folder and:



it's extremely useful to flag files in a folder and obviously handy visual navigation.
I searched for this a lot, as above, a utility exists for XP. none for W7 - anyway, this should be a standard Windows feature.

appreciate any help you might find

@joecool -

Here are some resources available and ways you might think about structuring your file system.

Change Folder Options: A rundown:

You might also consider starting and digging into the robust library tools:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...with-libraries

There are some great hierarchy systems that can be put into place, which help reveal and sort information. Then you can always use search to find files.

Those should help too. Hope these help in the meantime. Really appreciate your feedback.
Cheers,
Kim
