Can we change the color in folders?

Can we change the color in folders?

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.

Yes and to change the color of the Stars as well

I'd love to see this capability. It's the one thing I lost when moving my files from my hard drive to DB, and it's incredibly valuable to my workflow.

I use this often on another platform and really miss it. Thanks for suggesting this.

How can a company ignore the wishes of their users so persistently and pigheadedly? Of course EVERYBODY would like to be able to color files in DB - it's a no-brainer, and it doesn't require rocket scientists to come up with a solution. They just simply couldn't care less!

I think it would be a great idea if we had the feature to select any photo to make as a album cover photo. I store a lot of different albums on my Dropbox and I know by applying album cover photos I could find the album I am looking for much easier. Just a suggestion I would love to see happen. Thanks

This idea is going to need a bit more support before we share your suggestion with our team.

I would like to request the addition of colored folders in order to be able to organize things more beautifully. Please, help us Dropbox users look our best when sharing info!

- an icon that has a short menu with pastel colors dots to choose your color for a specific folder.
