What’s New in the 4.8 version? Detailed list.

  • The Mark Folder menu has been enhanced with the support of a dark theme, and icons are now displayed against a transparent background, eliminating the previous gray backdrop. In addition, we’ve incorporated larger icons into the standard sets. Consequently, even at 125%, 150%, or 175% scaling, the Mark Folder menu maintains a visually appealing.

  • We have made significant adjustments to the appearance of the program windows to ensure that they look visually pleasing on dual-monitor systems. As a result, Folder Marker now looks great when you move the windows from a monitor with 125% scaling to a monitor with 100% scaling. Additionally, the program as well as the Mark Folder menu are designed to look good on large screens with 150% or even 175% scaling. So if you have a large, expensive, high-resolution monitor, or two – version 4.8 of Folder Marker will look better on it.
  • The update window now shows whether the update is free or paid for licensed versions of Folder Marker. Some of our users are disappointed when they see after the update the request to pay the update fee.

  • Ukrainian, Dutch, Filipino, French, Greek, Japanese, Korean, and Portuguese languages were updated.
  • Changing the icon via the Mark Folder menu no longer results in a brief flash of the Folder Marker application icon in the Taskbar.

  • Let me say first that I love Folder Marker and have used it for years. I am in the process of changing out my old computer for a new one (the tech-my husband slowly reprogamming the new machine). I don’t know if Folder Marker will automatically move to it, but I do have the disk assuming that will work (never assume). In any event, once the new machine is in place, I do want to upgrade even further with Folder Marker. I have been looking at the site, and saw, but could not re-find, one where you could also add a pattern to the folder. I’d like to be able to do that. Can you direct me to where I can find this, so when I go to the site, probably in a few weeks (we’re slow), I can order it.

  • The update looks very nice.
    Can’t see an upgrade price though, only price for a new purchase.
    Also having about the language, to many having the American flag associated with the English language is very insulting.

    • Both ways will work, but better to unsinstall v 4.7 first, to be sure no files are used by your system during installation of the new version
