But for me it looks like this:

Does anyone have an idea or a solution?

Many greetings

    Hi @Co-Ralle ,

    Per my test, in SharePoint online we are able to select subfolder in document library web part. But in SharePoint 2019 we are not able select subfolder. You could create a custom view to only show this subfolder as a workaround.
