Can we change the color in folders or tag files by color?

Collaborator | Level 9

Can Dropbox add the ability to change the color of folders? I use this feature in Google Drive and it is very handy. Also the ability to add and search tags would be very helpful.

I'd love to see a feature become available that will allow users to customise the colours of the folders, as I feel this would make it much easier to locate certain folders, and will greatly help in organisation and management of files.

Is there a way to change the color of your files?  If so then how?

Hi there, are you referring to tagging files by color? If so, currently this isn’t possible on the Dropbox site.
 
If I’m misunderstanding something, please let me know more details!

I would also really like to see this done. I prefer DB over Google Drive but the coloured folders are extreemly effective when I quickly need to find a file on my phone or tablet.

I'm relatively new to DB, however has anyone requested or is DB going to allow the option of choosing colourd folders? There are so many benifits to this, I can't understand why it isn't already an option?

Yes, totally agree!!!

I love dropbox, but in real life I also use color-coding to organise. Makes life simpler. Would really love that if it would be possible!!!

I completely agree with the comments on folder colours.    In real life, this is exactly how certain matters are distinguished from others.    Please colour our world Dropbox!!
