Happy second day of spring!
I wanted to share this super quick and easy tutorial with you today because changing your blah and boring default folder icons to custom, awesome icons WILL change your life.
I’ve been doing this for years and it really does make work a bit more fun especially if you do a ton of computer work like I do! Best part is you don’t need anything fancy to make it happen! Watch the tutorial below.
I’ve rounded up some affordable, adorable or otherwise likable options for you to use for your icons from Creative Market below.
Remember you can use just about any image and you could definitely spend an hour or more browsing all the amazing options CM has!
The benefit to buying a set is that your icons will maintain a similar look and feel and appear more uniform and organized. If you buy a set with lots of icons in it you’ll be set for a while if you create lots of folders.
Be sure to read the descriptions on these or any other sets or items to be sure they suit your computer’s abilities. If you don’t have a program like pixelmatr to open the .eps files in to isolate the images if they come on a single sheet, look for sets that have individual elements.

I love this set of stylized jungle animals. This would be perfect for you animal + color lovers.
This set of circle icons has a little bit of everything. Would be great for those of you who want your icons to thematically align with your folder names as there is bound to be a match somewhere in this set of 250 icons! Do note this set is a bit more expensive.
This sleek water drop set is ideal for minimalists.
Let me know which set you choose!
