Is there a way to change the colour of the folders so that they show up easier?​

With the folder names I find it hard to see the difference between folders and scripts. Is there a way to change the colour of the folders so that they show up easier?


You can do a child theme - modifying folder names would be like

.treeview .dir > .header {
color: red;

I'm a bit confused how to install this code that you sent me. I looked at the guide and I couldnt find how to install a child theme.

I went into the /themes/ and installed a theme and I see these folders.

Having a similar struggle. I've made a temporary solution by replacing the sprites of my folders, but it has to be done manually for each folder for both the open and closed states, which is a *huge* pain in the ass. Would be really cool to have a simple "Change default folder image" option.  I saw YellowAfterLife's reply, but I don't seem to be smart enough to figure out how the theme customization is supposed to work?


  1. You make a new folder in themes directory
  2. You make a file called "config.json" with something like
    { "parentTheme": "dark", "stylesheets": ["style.css"] }
    (replace "dark" with name of the theme you are using, if needed)
  3. You make a file called "style.css" and paste CSS from my original replace in there
  4. Upon restarting GMEdit your theme will show up on the list in Preferences.


Thankyou so much that worked

very helpful, thanks
