By changing the folder with different styles, we can greatly improve the computer operation efficiency. Although it’s possible to simply modify the icon of folder in the ‘Folder icons’ field of folder’s ‘Properties’, when you move (equivalent to change the path) or rename this folder, all will return to their original state. I do believe many people who would like to change their folder icon encountered this troublesome problem ever.

Mohaned-B Folder iChanger is a handy tool for folder icon personalized customization, very practical and free for use. It can change the icon of folders, disk partition, or removable disk, and especially the changed icons are effective permanently. That means, the icon of folder or disk keep the same even after you reinstall the Windows OS; and the icon for a USB flash drive will be also the modified style when you connect it to other computers, rather than restoring to the default.

In addition, Mohaned-B Folder iChanger allows to directly extract icons from executable files such like EXE, and to save them as .ico icon or other image formats. Also, if you have a lot of folders need to be modified, it also supports batch icon modifications at the same time.
