How I can change an icon for a file in zorin lite (thunar file system)?

I can change icon for a file in nemo file system, but I can't do that in thunar file system. and when i change icon by nemo, that not effect on thunar.

As far as I know, Thunar doesn't have that feature to change icons. If it's important then use nemo as file browser.

I have made nemo the default file system in zorin lite, but I want to remove thunar from zorin lite, it is allowed

Yes you can remove thunar.

sudo apt remove thunar

:grimacing: Sorry for including advice that can potentially break things. I did not know that removing a file manager could remove the desktop..
