Windows 10: Pink Folder Names

    Pink Folder Names

    Something very weird happened just now.
    I opened a folder with a subfolder in Documents. The subfolder had nothing in it. When I returned to my Documents, all the folders names where pink! Why?
    I returned to the folder and took the Read only off. When I returned to my Documents, all folder names where black again. I then just deleted the questionable folder and all seems black and fine now. I'm sure I've seen these pink folder names in Windows 7 before and my gut instinct just tells me it's not a good thing.
    What do pink folder names mean and how do I prevent the folder names from ever turning pink again?

    I don't know about pink folders.

    What I do know is that compressed folders are displayed in a different color. At least Windows 7 showed them in blue I think.
