Hi diaz :)

Windows doesn't have any native feature that allows you to change the color of your folders. It's mostly done via a third-party program or explorer shell that handles this. There's tons of them online if you want to look them up. However in the end, this isn't a Windows feature :)

Thanks a lot!

Hey there Diaz!
It reminds me a FolderMarker software functions.
To be honest I don't remember the full list of functions, but it for sure will help you to change folder colors and put every icons you need to.
Good luck! ;)
