Well if you are talking about in Windows Explorer, it is pretty much impossible. You could apply attributes to the download to change the text color, but you cannot make the text bold or italic. To change the attributes:

1. Make the text blue: Right-click the download in Windows Explorer, click Properties>Advanced, and select "Compress File To Save Disk Space".
2. Make the text green (only works in Windows XP Professional): Right-click the download in Windows Explorer, click Properties>Advanced, and select "Encrypt File to Secure Data".

Those are the only 2 I know of.

Ask and Answer. The way of learning.

Except for compressed and encrypted files Windows Explorer does not support item specific colors or font attributes. You can set font size, bold, and italics but this setting is global to all files and folders, and it effects many other applications besides.
