And where do you keep the folders? In the Documents folder, right? That way you’ll always know where your files and folders are.
There are two other places where Mac users keep folders. One is in the Dock, on the right hand side. The other is in the Finder’s Sidebar. Both are convenient locations for frequently used folders. There’s just one problem with each location. All the folders look pretty much the same.
Except for Apple’s Apps, Utilities, Downloads, and Desktop folders, folders we use regularly are the same color. That needs to change. Putting a little color into a folder distinguishes it from other folders in the Dock and the Sidebar. How can you change the folders on your Mac so they’re more easily identified?
FolderBrander is a simple Mac app that lets you change the folder’s icons, colors, and text so when they’re dropped into the Dock or the Finder’s Sidebar you can easily tell which is which.
Pick an icon for the folder, add text, change fonts, or create a custom set of folders just for your needs.
That’s simple enough, right? Here’s an example of the typical folder placement in the Mac’s Dock. Right below is the customized folders from FolderBrander.
FolderBrander lets you add text to a folder icon, rotate text, add text shadow, and create your own custom folder sets. Click the Apply button on FolderBrander and the effects are transferred to your folder.
