Can you insert you own icon in favorites?

When someone adds my page to his/her favorites list i want an icon of my own to be there instead of the usual IE icon.
I this possible?

Is it also possible to have it in the windowbar up to the left?

  • Hi,

    Yes, you can do the icon in favourites. Just place an icon file named favicon.ico in the root folder of your site. I'm pretty certain that this is what you have to do anyway.

    Sorry, I'm not sure about the other logo.

    Hope this helps!

    I didnt get it to work. I made a index.html in c:progs
    and also put a icon favicon.ico in the same folder.

    Then i opened the index in IE and added the page to favorites.
    But i only got the old boring IE icon instead of my own.
    Maybe you just cant do it on your own computer....

    Do you know another way.

    Any help is welcome.

    btw. Thanks Jonathan

    Maybe it only works when the site is uploaded and on the web?

    I know there are problems with it sometimes. I have an article on this somewhere....I'll dig it up and let you know what it says.

    I'll get back to you soon.
