    You can only do that with Themes (you can change the background of it from the Navigation Bar section in your phone's Settings, but that won't change the actual button's colors).

    3rd party apps like Substratum can do that, too, but it can 'break' stuff if you don't know what you're doing and not sure it works without root on Samsung phones anymore.

    You can't do it with samsung's own Good Lock? You can certainly change where they are and what they do and even what they look like... I would assume color, too.

    Thanks, forgot about that option! Alas, nope, the Navstar add-on to GoodLock only lets you change the icon set, the background color for the nav bar, add buttons/modify layout and set transparency, but no dice on the icon color. HOWEVER it does let you choose to have 'Adaptive color' on the icons, which will change according to whatever is being displayed in the background (but still no 'hard' choice for a single color).

    I use Nova launcher. They tell me I would have to be rooted to change the colour.
    Sigh. Here we go again...

    Themes (from the Samsung Theme Store). You have to find a theme that has the buttons in the color/shape/background that you prefer. In this case, the attached is using the theme Glass 3v2.

    Bear in mind that changes are coming to the Theme Store and the use of Free Themes after the Pie update.
