A favicon (short for Favorite icon) is a file containing a small 16×16 pixel icon, associated with a particular website. In the example, the Wikipedia website has a “W” favicon (circled in green); websites that do not have a favicon display have generic blank icon (circled in red).
- Convert any small PNG file (such as the University Logo) to ICO using Photoshop or an online converter such as ConvertICO.com.
- Rename the file to myicon.ico and upload the file to the root folder.
- Edit the HTML file and add the following code between the <head> tags:
<link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”http://example.com/myicon.ico” />
