Windows 10 doesn’t have any options for you to customize folder colors. FolderPainter is a freeware that lets you color your Windows explorer folder color and change it from the default yellow color. Using this application, you can assign any color to your frequently accessed folders for example your financial folder can be green (like money) and your tasks folder can be red (urgent maybe?). After that No longer will you have to run your eyes over many folders to access your favorite folder. Having a different color will make the folder stand out, so that you can open it quickly.
The application doesn’t affect system performance in any way and the best of all is that it works smoothly on all Windows versions , No installation , No activation code , Portable , Freeware.

Great idea, thanks for posting. Unfortunately this hit two different areas of software this site doesn't often go: command line interface or a context menu.

The context menu stuff like this by it's nature involves registry writes, which isn't portable. Would you consider something that changes folder colors via drag-and-drop?

I haven't tested your program yet so some of the following might be suggestions that are already present ...

Wishlist:

* Ability to set colors

* Some available default color sets including pastels, variations on the standard Windows manilla folder look (e.g. light brown through dark brown), and

* Naming - I don't think it's necessary to list both the folders and the associated colors. If you're colorblind, you're not going to use this program. In their place it might make sense to have custom naming so for example "Gray" could be "Documentation", "Red" could become "Important", etc.
