Is it somehow possible to create custom icons or include FontAwesome for chrome? I'm using Windows 10.

Although you cant change folder icon, you can rename the folder name to an Emoji so that you can see next to the folder an icon . For example you can go to https://emojipedia.org/ search for guitar, peak a result, roll down until you'll find "Copy and paste this emoji" . Just copy and past it to the rename of the folder. 🎸

    On Windows you can press Windows Key + Period to open the emoji picker. Then start typing to filter emojis. Jun 12, 2022 at 23:38

Choosing custom icons for bookmark folders in the bookmarks bar is not currently possible. If you'd like to see this in the next Chrome upgrade, make sure to start a new thread with your feature request and also submit feedback directly in Chrome.

To submit feedback directly in Chrome:

  1. Click the Chrome menu (More) in the top right corner of the browser.
  2. Select Help.
  3. Select Report an Issue.
  4. Add the details of your feature request.

I answered a similar question here.

There isn't currently (November 2019) a way to do this natively, although this functionality is a Chrome feature-request that I would recommend up-voting.

Your options at present are (from easiest to difficult):
