Folder Changer icon Choose from a rich collection of icons to enhance folder aesthetics, or create your own library of icons, and apply them to folders through a simple drag and drop operation

There’s a high chance that the first thing you do after a fresh Windows setup is to change the wallpaper, or start customizing everything. This can include changing aspect of some files and folders. In this regard, Folder Changer comes with a large library of icons, and a really quick way of changing the icon of any folder.

Lightweight, and easy to use

All the application has to offer is found in a pretty compact main window. Different tabs make it easy to scroll through icon categories, with rich libraries for color/organize, and fun. Additionally, there’s the possibility to add your own pictures in a library and use them directly through the application’s icon changing function.

Sure enough, changing the icon of a folder can be done with default tools provided by Windows, but personalizing multiple directories this way can be a lengthy process. The application narrows it down to only a couple of seconds, requiring more time to decide on the right icon than actually applying it.

Rich library of preset icons

All effort on your behalf consists of dropping a target folder over the icon you want to use. Make sure to be in the right category before grabbing the folder from its location, because the icon is changed on the spot, and no options can be handled while holding the folder. Each section is fitted with a small description so you know exactly how customization works.

You get to choose from quite the diversity of icons, ranging from different folder colors, office objects, devices, and miscellaneous icons. Unfortunately, there’s no possibility to add custom icons in other categories than pictures, which can make category management close to impossible.

To sum it up

All things considered, we come to the conclusion that Folder Changer does manage to cut off a great deal of time when personalizing folders. Custom icons can be added in a special group, while the application itself provides an impressive variety of icon collections to help enhance any kind of environment.
