  1. That’s great, the folder colour is hideous! However, I have a lot of folders, doing this one by one would be tedious to say the least. How do we make our newly coloured folder the default for all folders, not just one?

  2. I was really thrilled to find this article today. Somewhat embarrassed as I work as a part-time Graphic Artist and should have known this. Even more embarrassing, you speak of making a folder red as an example, but no amount of manipulation allows me to actually achieve red.
