Change shared folder icons W10

Change shared folder icons W10

I can change the icons in W10 of folders only owned by me, but when I change the shared folders icon it reverts after restarting Windows explorer. Is it possible to do it?

Hi @Kashiwa, thanks for posting on the Community!

The Dropbox desktop application ensures consistent folder icons and file/folder permissions for items in the Dropbox folder.

This means that you may see that custom folder icons are removed, and that you won't be able to amend any icons for the folders.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know!

That's correct, it wouldn't be possible to use any custom icons within the Dropbox folder.
