Yes. Right Click - Properties - Customize tab

Here you'll be able to change the icon or choose an image.

I think it changes the folder icon( empty folder) to different icon with different color.

In my case,each of apps in the Programs file are identified with a PNG. file that shows the logo of the app. inside that folder.That "feature is lost if I use the FolderMaker app.

Question is: is any application that can change the color and NOT the properties of the folder (to show contents)...?
