    I was bored and started looking at custom folders for Macs, and stumbled across this guy's site. Clicky

    I liked his designs, but they didn't really fit my needs, so I downloaded a template of his and started to make my own. I thought I would show them off and see what you think, mostly cause I am bored. The folders are all for specific folders (except the spray paint ones, I made those as random ones for my GF), eg TV shows, documents, Rosetta Stone French, etc.

    Wow, that's really cool man. A nice way of organizing your things. Too bad there's no Windows equivalent :\

    Here is the files, I uploaded them both in PSD and PNG format, but if you want to make your own, using the PSD is the way to go. If you can't figure out how to do it, I can post a short tutorial for whoever wants it

    thanks for the link! that was really interesting. You learn something new every day. I have always seen the desktop.ini file placed in some of my folders, but I never bothered to actually open it and see what it did. thanks =).

    and science, those icons are dope. good job =).
    *edit*
    woah I just noticed the banksy Balloon girl piece you used as the third folder on the list. I tattooed that piece on a girl a few months ago lol.

    Hey tuno123. Sorry, it wasn't that great of a tutorial, I was really just jumping a ton of stuff, etc etc, my bad.

    You'll have to navigate to the folder you want to change in a DOS window.
    To open a DOS box:[*]Click Start[*]Click Run...[*]Type in "cmd" (without the quotes) and press EnterFrom here, you will have to navigate to the folder you want to change. Actually, to the parent folder.

    In my example, I used C:\Test\Warcueid. I am assuming that you have already created a folder using windows.[*]type "cd\" (without the quotes) and press Enter[*]type "cd test" (without the quotes) and press Enter: We are now in the parent directory for Warcueid[*]type "attrib +s warcueid" (without the quotes) and press EnterThose are pretty much the steps that I skipped in my image.

    Shortcuts & Extras:
    You can "cd" (change directory) to a folder in one line/step. For this to work, you will need to be on the drive letter already (i.e. C:\). You can always change letters by "cd c:" or "cd :"
    Examples:
    cd \test

    because that is a little too troublesome for newbies I'll be writing a tool that will automate the process.

    I used another method to change the folder icons by right-clicking>properties>customize>change icon

    I still don't know how to change an icon for a .nds file does it have to be done with your method from your previous post or it uses a completely different method ?

    The Simpsons .ico work well on my Vista PC.

    [​IMG]

    Are there any others for other shows?

    Also, can I make the folder name invisible?

    EDIT: I use http://www.convertico.com/ to convert PNG files to ICO
