A Fun Organizational Tool for Folders

I know, maybe I have too much time on my hands, but I’m a nut when it comes to organizing things – sometimes to the extreme. Oh wait, that sounds a lot like an obsessive-compulsive disorder.  Let’s not go there, shall we? That’s another subject … Anywhoo, here’s a little trick to help organize all those boring folders and files on your computer.

Here’s what your document file looks like, now:

Step 3: Right Click on a folder and pull up “Get info” – it will look like this. Right-click on the small folder next to the name and paste the copy of your selected icon.

It’s a good way to organize those pesky boring files, but I must warn you. The process can be very addicting. Happy organizing!
