This is a fascinating program and it does exactly what it says on the tin. If there is any drawback it is that the folders don't always want to play ball in as much as they don't change colour straight away, you have to do a bit of tweaking, but this does not distract from a good and original program

I'm using Office 2007, I downloaded the software and installed, but I'm not able to change the colors of the folders/sub-folders.

I downloaded your program hoping that I could change the folder colour within Outlook 2007. I am sorry to say that it appears to work only for windows folders!! I will leave it for few more days to see if I receive any reply to my original message otherwise it is not of great interest. If it worked with Outlook then I might even pay for it!

This is an excellent utility to organise the folder and to identify by grouping with colors. Thanks a lot - Sridhar

Just what I was looking for. Easy to use color coding for my folders. Probably too many colors to choose from, but I will get over it. :)

This is the easiest software I've used yet! Easy to install and no need to read any directions. Voila!! If you wanted to make some folders stand out from any others for studying purposes or just because you needed it to stand out from the rest, then this is for you. Great product!! Thanks guys!!! AAA+++

Works perfectly on Windows 7 64 bit .... I love this app

Concept is good/needed, but program not realy intuitive (only intelligent people can use it without a learning curve.
Suggestion (at no charge):
Just use available functions (ctrl, shift) to select folders, right click, give option to select subfolders and select color.

Tried it but it would not work on Vista folders

I have been looking for a way to change the color of my folders for quite some time & find others on here charging about $35 for the same thing: well, not the same thing as with this program, you can set the folder colors to your color choice using the scrollbars & save color choices - so your color choices are pretty near infinite (the competition has preset color folders and are limited)...I am more than satisfied with this awesome program - thanks!

The program itself works fine, but I was looking for a way to add colors to folders inside outlook.
I understand that this isn't possible.

All I can say about Rainbow Folders is, what a brilliant little program it is - and all for free!
Simple, effective, and it does what it says on the can!
It's certainly brightened up my computer!
Well done!

Outlook folders

Does anyone know how to use Rainbow Folders to change the color of folders and sub folders in Outlook?

Simple and efficient, but...

Great little program to quickly and easily add colors to folders. However, colors can only be selected based on the user choosing hue and saturation preferences. Seems to me it would be much easier to just create a color cube box that includes Windows "basic colors" so users could simply pick the color of their choice. Still an excellent program. And free to boot!!!

Good so far

Good so far (after 1 day of use), but a few notes that I found: 1. Folders do color - thanks for that, they look great even in Vista! 2. Folders don't have a preview mode that shows content inside; not a big deal. 3. I have to re-boot to have the colors show after I have assigned them. 4. Folders only get colored if they are a "document" folder; again, not a big deal. Overall I would say that this is a neat program notwithstanding that I really haven't run it enough to know if it takes up a lot of memory, or causes problems et..., but it really is a great step. Thanks for the good programming!

Folder color - If I removed color I could not put color back in.

This is a pretty neat application. Works great with no problems, thank you very much.

A good little program

The good thing about it is you don't have to leave the program running to get permanent changes in folder colors.

Very Nice, But Not What I Hoped For

This programs is simple and very nice. However, I was seeking something that could access and change the color of the folders in MS Outlook. This does not. As far as regular Windows folders, you can make your folder structure psychedelic very easily. But that isn't what I was looking for.

Excellent Utility

This is an excellent utility for marking all folders that contain info related to each other. I can mark a project in red and one in green, etc, etc. This makes it easy to know a folder at a glance even in a large group.

it`s interesting

it's interesting because you can change folders to any color, which make it's easier for you to catergorize your items into colors. for example, all my audio has a blue folder, my desktop gadgets are in pink and downloaded programs are in green.
