Aesthetic and Functional Use
Folder Icon Designer helps you change how your folder icons look. This helps if you’re bored of the same old look. But changing the folder icon appearance also helps you not get confused between different folders that look the same but house different content. The app is simple to use, which means anyone can customize their folders. Also, you may edit the pattern/icon scale to achieve the right fit as per your requirements. The background color can be changed, and you may use your mouse to position icons.
Using the App
To customize your folder icons, launch the app. As soon as you do so, you would be presented with an interface with different icons and the ways you can edit them. To change a particular folder’s look, you need to drag that folder into the app window and choose from the different icon options you have. You may match folders with similar or related content with picture, text or color so that you keep things a bit more organized. Also, you may place text and images right where you choose to on the icon.
