Hi We have a document library and contains subfolders in that,

So, the thing is we need to change the brown folder icons for root folders and subfolders to the some other icons.

Can anyone please suggest how to do this? Thanks!

@Bangal450 Which version of SharePoint you are using? Are you using SharePoint online or SharePoint on premise?

 

There is no option from SharePoint UI to change the colors for folders. But, if you are using SharePoint online modern experience, you might able to show your custom images for folders/files instead of default images using JSON formatting.
