Don’t get me started on the Mac’s folders. The best Apple can come up with is an anemic blue color with embossed logos so you can squint to see the difference between Applications and Utilities, Desktop and Documents; the Downloads folder is decent. Here’s a good way to bring some color back to your Mac.
Color Folders Extreme
Allow me to go out on a limb with ColoFolXS which I assume means ‘color folders extreme.’ Anyway, that seems to fit. What ColoFolXS does is handy, useful, adds a bit of personalization to your Mac; oh, and it doesn’t cost much.
ColoFolXS colors folders. There are many ways to add custom folder icons to your folders, but none are as easy as using this clever utility which has the two easiest ways possible to add a custom color to a folder.
First, grab a folder in the Finder, drag and drop it on one of the ColoFolX color cells. Done. Second, select a folder in the Finder, then use the right-click contextual menu from the mouse popup, select ColoFolX from the menu, and select a color cell. Done.
ColoFolX comes with preset colors, but each one can be customized using the color panel or color sliders. And, you can keep the customized colors to be reused on other folders.
That’s it. There’s not much to it but an easy way to get rid of Apple’s anemic blue folders and replace them with color which will make folders stand on on the battleship gray sea known as the Finder.
