We could customize the Mac a bit back then, but Apple seems intent on eliminating every vestige of color from the Mac’s user interface. The Finder sidebar is drab winter gray, and folder icons are an anemic, lifeless, Smurf-like blue. Want more color? Get it here.
Just Colored Folders
Mac users who require more than the mind-numbing, uninspired folders that come in OS X these days, will appreciated the value in ColoFolXS, an elegant Mac utility that does one thing, and one thing only.
Folders. Colored folders. Any color you can think of or figure out how to make, and in a variety of styles. That’s what ColoFolXS does. Folders. In color. Open ColoFolXS on your Mac. Drag and drop a folder or folders onto the color you want. Done.
Or, for more options, use the slider bars to adjust the color to suit your taste or needs, and even set a different folder look with a different background color.
There’s no easier way to create customized colored folders that stand out in a crowded Finder window, and it’s an option that lets you customize a few pieces of your Mac’s screen that normally don’t get much love from Apple.
The color cells in ColoFoXS can be customized, too. The only thing missing is an option to drop in an image icon to replace the standard folder icon. Otherwise, what you see is what you get. Colored folders, quick and easy.
The CoLolXS developer has a beef with Apple’s Mac App Store (who doesn’t? Amirite?) regarding the latest version but it’s still available as a download from the developer site. It’s an affordable app, easy to master, and gives your Mac what Apple’s digital overlords don’t want you to have. Colored folders.
