Windows 7: Background colors for SPECIFIC folders?

Background colors for SPECIFIC folders?

Is there a way to alter the background colors of SPECIFIC folders. Win 7 Home Premium and Win 7 Pro (both 64 bit)

I use DAZ 3D and have my active folders of content. I want to have a different background color because I also have archives of those files plus additional content not installed. Often I am opening both and dragging files. On occasion I have moved wrong files because of confusion over which folder is which since they contain most of the same folder names.

If I can have the active folder with perhaps a pink background I cannot confuse which folder is which.

Also with folders with images it would be nice to be able to see which .png images have transparent backgrounds but you cannot tell on a white background.

There is a utility I found called W7FPB which you would think would solve the issue but it does not work. First try it gave an error on start. Now it seems to start ok but no changes are ever applied. There is not even an "apply" button.

I don't care if it is assigning a color or applying a background image for the color. Even if I could change text color to red or something.

Any help appreciated.
