Add name to favorites folder

Post by *kadavir »

I have my favorite folders (e.g. documents, downloads, music, pictures, videos) on the button bar. The problem is that they all have the same icon, making it hard to distinguish. Is there a way to put the name of the folder next to the icon or have different icons for each folder?

What stops you from assigning different icons and adding approbiate Tooltips to your buttons ?

I do not like the choices among the default icons. I would prefer it to use the default Windows icons (for the documents/downloads/videos folders) and folder names underneath the icons.

I prefer not to have to use the tooltip, as it takes extra time to search through each one.

No

Yes

put "%Commander_Path%\WCMICONS.DLL" in the Icon file box, press TAB-key and choose an Icon.


There are many more Icon libraries on your computer.

Thanks a lot. That directory seems to be the one I need for the Windows documents/downloads/videos/pictures icons.
