Snow Leopard Folder Colors

I like to color code my folders to keep organized, and I like a little more flexibility than what the colored file labels in OSX can offer.

So this is the default Snow Leopard folder in various colors. The .zip contains both .icns and .png formats.

Changing a folder icon using Finder:
  1. Right click one of the colored folders, and select Get Info (or highlight a folder and hit ⌘I)
  2. In the pop-up window, click the folder's icon in the top left
  3. Press ⌘C
  4. Repeat steps 1 & 2 for the folder whose icon you want to change. But instead of copying its icon as in step 3, press ⌘V instead.

Love colored folders also, Thanks for your talent.

Thanks for sharing your icons and especially the directions! I was able to figure it out finally! :+favlove:

I have done this in the past but have tried today over and over and over luck.  I feel I must be doing something wrong but have exactly followed the steps.  I have Mojave OS.

Thanks for these!!
Thanks for the help. I didn't initially recognize that the download button went with the graphic of the folders because the button was situated underneath an ad, and you know how those download buttons are!
Appreciate the help. needed it. 
I cannot highlight an individual folder when I right-click or Command-I. )I just get the entire page of all the folders as one image.) Using El Capitan, which forum participants say should work. Help!
