Specify Flavicon ICON in URL

Last Modified: 2013-12-20
This may seem more troubl than it's worth but....   I have upgraded a suite of educational applications on our network used on about 5000 computers - it was a server/client setup but now the client part is web based.  After installing it I attempted to create shortcuts for our students using the old program ICON - as soon you clicked once, the shortcut ICON changed.  I called the company who was of no help telling me I would have to call Microsoft.  After searching and reading I came to understand the issue is that the web content uses a generic FLAViCON Icon for the web pages.  Since this is a suite of programs that previously all had separate ICONs, I don't want to just change the FLAVICON on the server - The math page ICON should be different from the READING, which is different from the teacher utility, etc.  So, if I place different ICON files in the appropriate location on the server can I speciy in the URL of my shortcuts which to use for each application?  If so, how?
