Shortcut icon

  ordep 11:25 02 Jun 2003

We have a games forum web site up and running. You'll no doubt see some familiar names in there.

Click click here

My question is, should you add a short cut to our site on your desktop, you get a blank page with the corner turned down, and the e from explorer in front of it.

So does any one know how we can transform that into our own icon, the same way you might add a short cut for a game on your desktop.

You need to make an icon for your site, upload it as a favicon and include a short link in your web page code to it. Not all ISPs support them, but once someone adds your site to their favourites it gets its own icon in the drop down IE list.

Creating a shortcut from the web page will then use your icon instead of the Windows Explorer icon.

Go to Google click here and use this as your search field:
