Colour Coding Folders?

  Cobber 06:21 15 Dec 2006

Is there a way of changing folders individually from the drab yellow to a colour of my chioce? (WinXP)

Open paint
Set the size of teh canvas to 32x32
Design your image file in the area you have
Save as xx.gif
Find this file and rename it xx.ico

Right click any folder, click properties and open the customise tab and then browse to the ico file you just made. Simple to do but a bugger to implement on a mass scale.
