Can you change the colour of a folder icon in OS X. Some of my users say they can do this via the cmd-i in OS 9.
They use different coloured folders to prioritise work.

Not natively, at least.

Isnt it supposed to be coming in 10.3 or something?
like a better version, more powerful?
I remember there being a thread in the Mac OS X forum, do a search for labels in there

Get some icons from <a href="
; target="_blank">www.xicons.com,</a> e.g. those basic ones with different colors.
In finder, choose the folder(s) you want to change. Click apple-i, choose the picture on it (preview);
on an other window go and choose the apple-i from the color icon that you want (e.g. basic blue or red); apple-c (=copy) the image of it, apple-v (paste) it to the folder you want to have it.
Repeat this with every folder you want to have a different color or icon.
If you wanted some folders to have a different color from the default, this will do that.
If you want to edit an icon ... need an icon editor.
