You can edit the themes folder in your suiteCRM root directory, which contains the CSS files for each theme. You may need to change the ownership and permissions of this folder to allow your web server user to access it¹. For example:

sudo chmod -R 775 themes

Every time I see these AI answers here I feel a motivation to stop answering forum threads, because this just confuses things more than necessary.
