4.0  (3 votes) (See all)

Dr. Folder is a neat and handy application that offers a fast and easy method of customizing the look of your folder icons on your Windows system. Instead of the classical yellow folders, you can now use anything else for the icons of the directories, including pictures of numbers, letters, etc. As long as it comes as in the ICO format, you can use any file to provide the image for the new icon of any folder. Dr. Folder already offers some alternative icons, neatly organized in categories like Work, Colors, Zodiac, and others. So if you want to quickly change some folder icons and you don't wanna use any particular ICO image, then you may just select one of the available alternatives.

Using Dr. Folder is easy, as its interface is neat and straightforward. Few additional options are available, of which the most remarkable is probably the fact that it allows you to rebuild the system icon cache to repair broken icon images. It can also replace the system-defined standard folder icon, which is used by Windows to display each folder on your computer, with any other icon you prefer.

To sum it all up, Dr. Folder is a nice choice if you want a quick and effective method to change any folder icon on your system. It's multilingual, easy-to-use, and reliable.
