What is icomancer?

icomancer is a folder icons composer for MicrosoftTM Windows® operating systems. Its sole pourpose is to help you to quickly identify specific folders among dozens to hundreds in your storage devices by embodying a special, easy-to-see, nice-with-the-eye icon you craft in a composition window.

Some pieces of software allow you to assign pre-made icons to your folders, some of them with embedded icons to mark them by content type or relevance. icomancer goes beyond that, allowing you to play with appearance controls and get exactly what you want.

But color is not all that matters! you can use textures in your folders, imprint your own pictures, embed add-on icons to set the folder content type and share your creations with our community!

Content matters

The strength of icomancer relies on its content. As a free user, you get a basic content pack that will fit your basic composition needs. You don't need to create an account in our community to get icomancer working, just download and run.

But what is icomancer's content? well, everything!

  • Folder templates to match your OS style or any theme assigned with a third-party icon customization app (like Stardock's IconPackager).
  • Color palettes with variations and special effects.
  • Texture packs to create opaque textured folders or translucent texture + color comps.
  • Add-on icon packs to mark your folders by content type.

If you create a free account in our community, you'll be able to download content created by other users and some special deliveries by our design team.

And it's free!

Yes, icomancer is not shareware. It's free for personal and commercial use for individuals and small-sized companies. Medium to big companies are requested to buy a corporate license pack.

There's no limitation on functionality for free users. The limitation is based on content: you'll not be able to get premium content unless you purchase a standard license.

If you decide to support us and purchase a standard license, you'll get premium content created specifically for our VIPs. Wanna check it? take a sneak peek now
