Case: How to Organize your Music Files using Folder Colorizer

It’s a little difficult to navigate on Windows because all folders have the same boring yellow color. Sure thing, you can always use search to look for your file, but isn’t folder coloring just a much-much cooler way?

Let’s say, that you own just tons of music on your computer (for example). Usually, they all have to be broken into categories like style, band/singer, your own preferences or year of the release. Arranging this can give a massive migraine to just anyone.

But instead, you can simply right-click on any folder and colorize it with any color of your choice.

For instance, you can choose “blue” for blues or select something dark for the rock music you have. You can also rename any shade to your liking right below the color wheel. 🙂

Bottom line

Windows 10 improved greatly since Windows 8. It’s easier to use and relatively open, but it won’t let you customize your folders and files. Basically, it’s just like one of those apartments you rent. It might be good, practical, but you can’t change much in there.

If same old yellow folders already bored you, Folder Colorizer is a lifesaver! It’s simply the easiest, most intuitive way to change folder color on Windows 10.
