How to upload favicon ico

The favicon icon will be displayed beside your website name in the Favorites menu, the location bar in IE, and if the user opens up the Favorites folder, it will be the icon used for the link to your site.

Opera and Firefox also have the ability to use the favicon.ico file. In fact, Firefox also accepts the file in other graphics formats, such as the PNG format. These browsers display the favicon.ico in the location bar of the browser (the part that shows your website’s address or URL). Safari, both the Mac OS X and the Windows versions, also loads the favicon.ico file into the address bar if available.

 

How to Create a ‘favicon.ico’ File

     > Create an image 16X16 pixels in size. Yes, it is really small and you can’t really draw much in it. You should also restrict  yourself to the standard Windows 16 colours,  although 256 colours will work fine. If you like, you can also create a 32X32 pixel icon, which will be scaled to size for the Favorites menu and the location bar. You can even put both 16X16 and  32X32 pixel icons into the same icon file. Windows will use the former for its menus and the latter when the user opens up  a folder that is set to display large icons. It’s probably not really necessary to do this if you can’t be bothered.

   > Save the image as an ICO file (named “favicon.ico”, of course).
