Version 4.6 of Folder Marker released. What’s New

Version 4.6 of Folder Marker is ready, and it supports Windows 11! Also, check re-drawn icon style, +13 added icons, increased speed, and more…  


  • Windows 11 support has been added. As we said before – “We are going to prepare folders in Windows11 style after Windows 11 is officially released”. So, here it is – all the built-in icons were re-drawn to match Windows 11 icon style. Check them out:

  • The “Additional” icon set was updated. We have re-drawn the App logos to the modern view and added 13 more icons. So now, the Additional icon set contains 75 icons for those Pro users who switched to Windows 11.

  • Optimized work with ICL files. Now Folder Marker applies icons from ICL files much much faster: speed increase might be up to 30x for ICL files with 500+ icons inside! This is especially important for the two sets that we are going to release very soon…Stay tuned!
The same icon from the Two-Color icon set applied 3 seconds in v 4.6 vs 19 seconds in 4.5. The difference is even bigger for an icon set with 500+ icons inside.

  • I purchased folder marker and one other product but every time I update I end up with a notice that my free trial has 30 day left etc. I filed a concern about this back in October and after 2 weeks I finally got an email from 2 checkout support telling me they were working on it. I never got any response from you. I purchase two products and only ended up with a trial package. Please either fix or refund my money. Like the product, hate the servive.

    • Hello, Jess. Sounds like you are entering your key to the wrong edition of Folder Marker. I.e. if you purchased Pro edition, you need to install Pro one. And the key will not work with the Home edition. And vice-versa.
      But to be 100% sure, please write to support service, and we will do the best to help in your case.

  • Will 4.6 work with windows 10? Also, will it support fonts and font colors for the folder name text?

  • I do not need your updates, I like the product the way it is for the past years…However, each time I update hoping this is a free update, I lose the original application…Is this done on purpose? Now it says “The period of the free updates for your license has expired 6/3/2021…” What is the version I am using? Let me go back to my original purchase and indicate whether each update is free of charge or billable…Thank you

    • Bertrand, buying a Folder Marker license, you get a lifetime license for THE CURRENT version of the Folder Marker, plus 1 year of free upgrades. The date when free updates are available for your license can be seen in Help->About window of Folder Marker. So you can check it before the update. Plus, each time we announce the update, we write the date of the purchases that can get the update for free.

    • Jorge, I see your order, and I see the tickets you’ve created (
      All 3 of them are answered by our support staff, read by you, and have no other replies from you. This is why the tickets were closed (no reply = the problem is solved).

      I’ve re-sent you your registration data one more time to the email address you’veу provided during purchase (j******s@** Please check your email.

  • I have had issues with this program since day one, MANY years ago. I have complained and no one listens…ever! It has never worked as promised and always tells me it has expired. Like someone said, love the product, but DESPISE the crappy service!

    • Jeff, we are having 2 tickets in our ticket system associated with your email. The first one is from 2014. You state there “Thanks – it worked”. The last one is from 2018 year, where we give you the right registration code. Our answer is read by you, no additional questions asked. We decided the key worked for you and the problem is solved. Don’t understand why do you call this “crappy service”. If you have any problems, please create a support ticket here:

      FM Pro can be used on one computer by one user = 1 seat license
