Customize modern SharePoint menu with icons
Creating a well-structured and meaningful menu using just a few words per item can be difficult. Wouldn’t be awesome to customize the menu items with icons?
I’ve wrote about this topic in the past and I even did a solution to customize classic SharePoint with Fabric UI icons.
Since SharePoint has evolved and the methods used in the past are no longer valid, today I bring you a quick tip that will allow you to customize your modern SharePoint menus in just a few clicks.
In this solution instead of using an icon font I will use the emoji menu available for Windows 10 and Mac OS.
- Start by editing the menu items
- Place the cursor in the location where you want to add the icon
- If you are using Windows 10 press “Windows” + “.”, if you are using Mac OS press “Command” + “Control” + “Spacebar”
- Look for the icon you want to use
- Save the menu item and then Save your menu
The end result will look like the following image.
