folderico.jpg Folderico allows you to customize your folders with whatever icons you wish, even the ones that are usually not accessible to you. You can view the icon preliminarily without making a decision, through both dialog or context views. You can also apply an icon-theme easily with Folderico. Freeware for Windows.
Personally, I don’t see a need for this mainly because I don’t customize my folders much. But when I did at one point in my life, this would have come in handy for quick easy changes for customized icons. It’s really a matter of personalization. Do you actually go and personalize every one of your icons in Windows so it has a touch of you? If so, then this little utility will definitely come in handy. If not, then don’t mess with it.
