Back when i was using iMac as my "watch" computer, i was simply changing the text background color of whatever i was watching to green in Finder.

The feature to tag and color any file is really something that i miss in Explorer (in Explorer you can edit tags if the file format supports it and Explorer knows about it, but this only works for some file formats and even then the UI is cumbersome).

The Finder’s color labeling feature has been useful for decades now, having been around since the early 90s iterations of the Mac OS. I don’t know why other file managers never picked it up; it deviates too far away from “Windows Explorer clone” I guess?
