When a webpage is bookmarked, a symbol and the web page name appears in the favorites window of Internet Explorer. The symbol is usually a blue sheet of paper that is behind the Internet Explorer logo. Sometimes it is a picture or a symbol. How can I (a website owner) change the default settings so that surfer's bookmarks on their browser will have my website's symbol/picture beside the name of my webpage?

Hi anthonycover, I love those shortcut icons! Sure makes finding a link easy if there's a long list.. Microsoft explains how to do it best: How to Add a Shortcut Icon to a Web Page http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/Author/dhtml/howto/ShortcutIcon.asp The article linked above explains how to use shortcut icons in the following three required steps: ? Create the Correct Size Icon (16x16 pixels) ? Associate the Icon with Your Web Page (save the icon with the default file name of favicon.ico in the root directory of your domain) ? Add the Web Page to the User's Favorites Menu (add a button or link on your page that prompts the user to add your page) If you don't want to create your own icon, I recommend going here: FavIcon http://www.favicon.com/ This will enable you to add your own FavIcon to your site, and it will appear in the address bar and in peoples Favorites list. If I can clarify, please don't hesitate to ask for clarification. ~~Cynthia Search strategy used at Google: "shortcut icon" favicon
