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
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!
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
- 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.
