If you have a website, you might want to have a favicon file which will be shown instead of the browser symbol. For example, on The IT Community website, you should see a icon with "IT" and some text on it.

Here is how to make an ico favicon file for the website:

  • First, create your logo. It is best to choose png as the file format.
  • The size of the logo doesn´t mater, but it should be a square.
  • Click Get Started.
  • Choose your logo in the file dialog that appears. You will have to change the filetype to *.png.
  • Click Export.
  • Choose a small size like 48x48 pixel and save the file.
  • Now, rename the file favicon.ico.
  • Upload the file to the root of your website.

After some time (give it a few hours), you should see your icon instead of the browser icon.
