" Dr. Folder is one of those little utilities that once you have it you wonder how you ever did without it. It lets you mark your Windows Explorer folders in a couple of different ways..." - Steven Sharewarejunkies.com

" Great program. Works fine on Windows 10 64 bit. Yes, it's true you can change folder icons by going to the Properties dialog - but it is so nice to have the context menu provided by Dr. Folder and to have all those icons grouped together in tabs" - Softpedia User
