Folder Iconizer


Folder Iconizer is a program developed by Vasilios Applications.

The software installer includes 19 files and is usually about 1.79 MB (1,881,499 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 50% of users of Folder Iconizer come from the United States, it is also popular in Brazil and Canada.
