Many of us use the computer on a daily basis, since it has become an indispensable device for many users, both personally and professionally. That is why being comfortable during its use is important, since we usually spend many hours in front of the screen..

 

Customizing the work environment is something that many users identify from others, since for them it is not enough to use the system default values, but to resort to additional options to improve the visual impact and access to objects. In this way we can identify more directly and quickly what we are looking for on the screen of our Mac.

 

In the case of macOS Big Sur, we have an option to change the color of the folders or assign text, when we create a folder. For example, on the desktop, we can see the default value of this:
