Locate websites link icons and change IE default link icon

Change sites icon from default IE icon to their own site link icon. When saving a site in my favorites folder, a lot of times the site will place their site specific icon next to the link rather than the default IE link. This is lost over time to temp file cache getting cleared.
I have read here from other poster's questions that by locating the *.ico file and saving it to a folder and then attaching the icon to this file will resolve.
I have yet been able to locate the icon's image. I have gone to the extent of replacing my EE link which re-establishes their icon in my favorites and then searching for ee.ico or Experts Exchange. I find the link but not the link icon.
Help.
Thanks,

Doug

This is http://www.experts-exchange.com/favicon.ico

The little icon you refer to is always (in theory) called favicon.ico and is located (again always in theory) in the root of any web site.

Thanks Tim,
But I am not looking for EE's specific icon, but rather any of my favorites .ico file

That's what I am saying, it should be called favicon.ico and located in the root of any website (assuming that the site has one). This standard behaviour. The naming and location are fixed so you can always retrieve the icon from any site.

Thanks Tim,
Sorry I missed your original post's intention. I did get it the second time around and it is right on.


Thanks,
