Color my empty folders in windows explorer

Color my empty folders in windows explorer
I would like a hotkey script to color the empty folders in a windows explorer directory.

Is it possible ?

Best Regards

There's also Remove Empty Directories: http://sourceforge.n...jects/rem-empty-dir/

It won't color the folders in Windows Explorer but it will show you which folders are empty and allow you to delete them.

I have installed and works well the free version.
Now how can I control automatically the difference from an empty folder ?.
I don't see in the compare table of versions clearly this possibility.
I think are manual modifications on the folders only. One by one or in group, but don't let automate the condition "empty folder".

Of course with the freeware Fast empty Folder Finder I can't too, but at least can remain open while I am supervising the status "empty folder" executing again.
So I will need a monitor feature in FolderMarker. Or I am not able to see this feature in FolderMarker.

Best Regards

I know, but is not the point.
I am a little fat this day, so I decided this week try dancing salsa.
And there is a lot of figures. Until the moment : cuban salsa, line salsa, and other dances about 418 folders.
Now my target is collect videos of the figures. When a folder contain a video i can study the folder.
This process is useful with many biyective applications in real world.
Is not comfortable see videos and don't remember if you have documented until this moment.
and is not a matter of alphabetical order because some videos contain 18 figures or more. ......
So may be a headache if you don't remember - and remember is a la lack of my memory - what folders are not empty.

Ejem. I have created many of that folders with listas.exe , an old program to read a txt file and make automatically the subdirectories.
I don't remember where i download, but i think is programmed in C because was in a c forum that now don't exist, but the programmer is in the spyware forum.

Please Skwire can you made a modification to MTIcon ?

is only retain or maintain in the selection window the last selected path and icon .
I like more than the other utility but better if I can repeat sometimes again easily

The root folder, icon path, and allowed filenames should already be saved.  Are you running the program from a UAC-protected folder?

No . I don't like UAC in any place.
