I made a large structure with small spheres using the particle system function. Changing the source object changes everything, which is expected. But Now I want to just change one of the spheres to be red and also change the shape to something else like polyhedral. So I used the "make instances real" function. This gives me individual spheres to work with. I can move/delete etc. But I can't change the color of the individual spheres. I made another shape and gave it the color red. But when I am trying to assign the new red object to one of the spheres it affects all and all becomes red.

Seems like all the spheres are linked together.

If you want to give your object a different material, but keep the mesh linked, in the Material panel, click on the Link button and choose Object, it will unlink the materials. If you want to do it for several objects, press Alt when you press on Object :

To unlink the mesh of a single object, go into the Object Data panel and press on the Make Single User button:

If you want to unlink several objects, select them all and go into Object > Relations > Make Single User > Object & Data. If you want to unlink the materials as well, choose Object & Data & Materials:
