If I create a Custom Post Type I can change the icon used in the dashboard with this

    'menu_icon' => [YOUR FILE PATH HERE] . '/images/portfolio-icon.png',  // Icon Path

Is it possible to change the color of the button in the dashboard.


If I'm understanding correctly what your wanting to do you'll need to override the CSS that is in /wp-admin/css/colors-fresh.css.

To change the default state of a single button you can just add CSS like this

#menu-posts-testimonials-widget {
  background: red;

this is an example with the testimonial widget plugin you can inspect the element to find out the id of the element and base your CSS off that.
