How can I change the colors of the unit tabs in the lessons view?
As it stands, you cannot change the colors of selective Unit folders.
However, you can leverage the Primary Color, configured in the Theme in use by the active Navbar. The Primary Color will be applied to all Unit folders. Lesson folders will be denoted by a lighter shade of that same Primary Color.
Here is more information on: Setting up Course Navbars and Themes
I hope that helps!

Hi Jeffrey! Thank you for your prompt response. In one of my sandbox courses (screenshot from previous post) the units are in different colors. How is that possible in that course but not others, I guess is my question? The theme for that course says " Brightspace default" with one primary "green" color chosen, but it's still showing several colors between the different unit folders. Like a rainbow effect. Is this an older feature?
The rainbow effect that you depicted above is what is used when there is no primary color override and/or no color set.
To map out which color effect to expect (rainbow or primary color override) can be a bit tricky. There's a bit of an order of operations to work your way back:
IF default (Use the default radio button) is chosen, you'd need to inspect what primary color is chosen for the default by following the default link
IF a color override (Choose colors radio button) is chosen, that is the color you should expect on all Unit folders, with a slightly lighter shade of that same color on all Lesson folders.
Based on your question, I'm willing to guess the theme applied in your navbar is probably using the default, and more specifically, a default which has no color set.
Let me know if what I'm describing above clarifies.
