    How could I star or favorite folders?


    I have a folder, inside it contains 250+ folders containing images. SOme of the folders are important and I want to be able to star them or something so when I look in at them they stand out from the rest. Is there a way I could do this? I could go to properties and customize to change the icon but then the images inside don't display as a preview on the folder's icon. Any way to do what I'm asking?

    Hello tuckertcs, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    As a workaround, you could compress the folder or a file to have it look like this below to stand out.

    Another option is to "Pin to Quick Access" the folder to be able to access it quickly in "Quick Access" in File Explorer. The folder won't stand out at the source location though.

    actually is there an alternative? whenever I drag a file into the folder the file becomes compressed but it gets annoying, I only want the folder compressed and I can do that where the folder is compressed but not the files but new files added default to compressed.

    You might check out a 3rd party file manager program like the ones below to see if they may have this feature to flag folders.

    ok. Actually I founf a program that can add tags to files so I could make a favorite or important tag to the folders abd then use the program to search for the favorite folders. It's called tagspace I really like it its cool.
