LabelsWin (tm) is a unique add-on for Windows Explorer that allows assigning colour labels to folder icons. This feature appeared in Mac OS first, and remained unavailable in Windows until now.
LabelsWin Lite is a free version of LabelsWin and supports folder labels only. Should you like to use labels for file icons as well, consider trying the full version (in only costs US$ 9.95 and there is a free 30 day trial period; folder labels created with the full version are compatible with the Lite version of the software).
There are other similar programs available, but all of them use existing folder icons, while LabelsWin Lite generates them on the fly, thus providing the best quality and user interface consistency for all supported versions of Windows.
The label setting interface is similar to the one in Mac OS, which aids users familiar with Macintosh.
Below is a screenshot of LabelsWin Lite in action: coloured file and folder icons as displayed in an Explorer window, and the label context menu, running under Windows XP.
LabelsWin Lite uses advanced system facilities that depend on Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 or newer, therefore the system requirements for it are as follows:
