Coloured folders for Windows
We can process colours far quicker than text.
Why not use them for folder organisation?
I am pretty keen on neatly organising my things.
This has lead me to recolour the default Windows 10 folder icon into 20 variations.
After having used these icons for a couple of years, I am pretty satisfied. They do make finding my way around my directories feel more effortless.
I have published the icon pack on deviantArt, and it became clear that others are also into colouring their folders.
There's just one thing though... Setting these icons manually is not a pleasant experience.
So I've made a little utility that helps you colour your folders.
Just right click on the folder...
...and pick a colour.
Initially, I intended to write the program in C#, but ended up going with AutoHotKey for the sake of simplicity.
You can get the folder colouring utility on the releases page of the project.
