Folder Painter screenshotFolder Painter is a small and free utility that offers you the possibility to change the appearance of you folders by selecting a custom color that will highlight the defined directories. The application will add a new entry to the Windows context menu for folders, allowing you to choose from a wide variety of distinct colors that can be applied with a single mouse click. The folders can be easily reverted to their original color, as well.
