Editing a Folder in SharePoint Online, Modern Experience

I am not sure that it is the right place to post this question. 

I am working on SharePoint Online, Modern Experience Environment. We have a Document Library with different folders. I wanted to tag a metadata on one of the folders. But I noticed that there is no feature that enable us to edit a single folder. There is an option of "Quick Edit"  instead. But, the requirement is to tag a metadata to a single folder when needed.

In this sense, is there any way to edit a folder (individually) rather that quick edit to tag a metadata? Thank you in advance for your help!

As you have mentioned, this is not a SharePoint forum.  However, you can edit a folders properties by selecting the folder and then clicking on Edit All in the details pane that appears on the right.  If you don't see the details pane, click on the elipses (the 3 dots) next to the folder name and click on Details.

I tried it out before I posted the question. I also worked around . But in modern experiance, taping "Details" and "Edit all" gives nothing. It does not allow me to edit a single folder.
