This is quite misleading. I’m pretty sure you should try to create another one icon.

Is a folder icon better? I would prefer a folder icon if there’s not another folder icon for “Create new folder” right next to it :laughing:.

Perhaps a folder icon would be more appropriate… For the add file and add folder icons, maybe just put a little plus in the top right corner to differentiate them?

I tried looking up “File explorer” icons and most of them were folders. A lot of them also had like a square clip on the bottom of them, but that might just be a Windows thing…
