What browser are you using?

Do you just want to remove, or edit the icon? What are you trying to accomplish?

As for the icon itself, you can fiddle with that just by going to Favorites, right click on the link name, choose properties, and click the Change Icon link, and change it to whatever you want...

if you are looking for "how" the icon is put there, thats a whole other story, based in the Browsers code itself...

Hmmm, it's working now.. musta just been a temporary thing... maybe the link sensed I was hungry, and hence would not work until I went to lunch?? Great Link though, you're right, that should cover all of sdesars questions.

## im not too sure how popular this favicons is, this is what i got frm the site



What if my ISP does not support favicons?
It is very simple, just put a copy in a different location and use the following tag:
<LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="https://www.somedomain.com/somename.ico">
