Hey! Who made the nice classy monochrome favourites folders yellow?!! I know this is a bit of a 'who moved my cheese' whine, but the monochrome folders were so much nicer don't you think?

Hi @ex-jedi, we have received a bunch of feedback that the monochrome icons were too similar, and didn't stand out enough.  We are still taking feedback though.  Let us have it!

Thanks - Elliot

Sure thing. It's just a personal taste thing for me, I like it when the folders and bookmarks don't stand out too much.

How much of the UI is going to be available for users to change to individual preferences? Are themes coming to Edge at some point?

Thanks Elliot.

Looks like the monochrome folders are back?

I agree with the OP, we need some colors on the favorites folders. I submitted feedback on this as well.

Yellow please.

@Elliot Kirk

Is this discussion just for the Favorites folder properties?  What about the Folder properties on the Bookmarks bar?  Is there any way to change these?  The plain "undifferentiated" icon just doesn't cut it for me.  At least make the default color yellow similar to the way the Brave browser does it.
