Set the syntax color for the respective file extension in this example for *.mp3. for MP3 file you can also use all wildcard filter for Example *.mp* this a filter for mp3, mp4, mp5, .... whatever. (... see Image-1 Point 3)
2.) Several different file types highlighted in color!
Multiple filtering or different colors for different file types are also possible.
Here in the example different text documents are chained together and assigned to a common color filter. This is very handy as you save time.
Here is the filter *.dok;*.txt;*.rtf; and in the color pink in this case!
You can always add more text document file extensions that should be highlighted with the same color!
Later, if necessary simply *.dok;* txt;*.rtf;*.odt; if you also want to highlight the Open Document text in the same color.
Note: Use "#" for hidden files, or "#DIR" for the folder.

One thing i miss is to set a color (in my case RED) on compressed files and folders (there are a few of them in Windows by default + mine ofcourse). Is that possible in Q-Dir ? Else i found all my settings for my need.?
About the use of colors for different types of files: is it possible to create filters based also on file attributes? For example; I work with cloud storage and would like to represent files and folders "online only" and "available offline" with different colors.
How do I factor in that some files are ZIP, some Jpg, PDF, and many others? I need to add a Type filter "TORRENT" but I don't know how. I'm trying to make ALL filter Types TORRENT reguardless their actual extention a (1) color. Any further questions don't hesitate to contact me.?
