    I think it would be better to use iColor Folder, not both.

    Perhaps I am missing something here but I can't seem to activate this program ........ I have downloaded and installed the program but have not been able to trigger the colour change!.

    Hi, if you have installed it then you should be able to right click the folder that you'd like to style and select Color Label. There you will find a choice of colors or customize. Good luck.

    I have the program properly installed but there is obviously some element preventing the implementation of the program function because no matter what colour I select in the manner you describe I am left with the standard WIN XP default colour. :confused:

    I Have just realised the reason for my dilema ......... I have two hard drives on my system and this utility will only work with folders on the drive that the program is installed on ie: the "C" drive ......... I was trying to implement a folder on my "D" drive ....... cool little utility (y) .

    I guess I am having a similar problem. When I change the color from the basic yellow to another color all folders in my files change. Not just a single one or a group of ones. ideally i would like to use a color code association with my folders.
    thanks
    ps still a great link and I am willing to work at getting it right. :)
