Do folder colours display in Bridge's folder list the way they do in Lightroom?

In Lightroom Classic, you can assign color labels to folders. In the folder list, these colors display as colored rectangles on the right of the folder name.

In Bridge I have assigned color labels to a number of my folders. However, there is no colored rectangles appearing next to those folder names in the folder list. 

Is there a setting that I need to change in order for the color to visible in the folder list?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

I do use labels in Bridge, including folders. However, they are not as useful as they are in the Mac Finder.

Folder labels will not show in the Folders or Favorites panels. They will show as metadata as @gary_sc explained.

Hi, @Jackie36417219acug. As one who uses the labels for folders in LRC, I never thought about using them in Bridge (although I have used Bridge, since version 1 with CS2.

 

Anyhow, the answer is yes, but you may need to make some adjustments. For one thing, in the List view, the Labels are way off to the right. There are more columns than you might think.

 If you right-click on any of the columns, you can add or remove any of the potential columns. In addition, if you mouse down on any of the column headings, you can drag left and right to place them in a "better for you" location.

 Just look for the dark blue line; that's where the column's new location will be moved to.

 Meanwhile, you've probably already seen the Labels in the Details View

 I hope this helps!

Thanks @gary_sc for your explanation. It was actually the listing of the Folders in the Folders panel which I was inquiring about. It appears that Bridge doesn't display the colors in the Folders Panel, but I can see the colors in the Content Panel.

Thanks Lumigraphics for this explanation. I'll just have to be satisfied with seeing the colors in the Contents Panel.
