I create a lot of shortcuts to websites and keep these shortcuts on my desktop, quicklaunch bar, etc. Except for a few rare cases, they are all represented by the IE icon. Sometimes even the rare 'true' icons are hijacked and replaced with the IE icon.
It takes nnecessary time to hover mouse over each IE icon before I find the one for the website I want to visit.
Is this a fault in my pc, OS, IE, or is it normal? And will kind souls please help me retain the 'true' icons?
I saw the same question raised here a couple of months ago. Somebody gave directions for changing the icons to the 'true' ones. It'll be in the archives somewhere. Maybe try typing 'icon' into the Search box?
Thanks very much for your advice. I couldnt get it right the way you suggested. However, your suggestions led me to try another way which turned out successful.
1. Save the site into 'Favourites'. Can see site saved with its icon. 2. Run FavOrg, highlight the saved website, hit Go! The site's icon will appear. 3. Open My Favourites folder, refresh it. Can see the site's icon. 4. Copy the 'fav'. 5. Paste the 'fav' onto DT. The icon appears. 6. Left-click, hold and pull the icon onto the QL bar.
Happiness. A longish route, but it works.
Sorry if I've been long-winded. Thanks again, All, esply crx1600.
