    Hi all,

    I have been searching on Google on how to set a specific color label for certain extension like .docx, .pdf, .png, etc. I was only able to change the color label for a specific by using command-I and change the color label. I want a specific extension to have a specific color label. Is this possible? It would be pretty helpful for me to spot a certain file type extension. :confused:

    Thanks for your help.

    Sorry, you can't. You can set a folder action on a particular directory (your downloads folder, for example) to change label colours, or change Finder to display files sorted by type. (In Finder, View -> Show View Options, Arrange by -> Kind.)
