Grabbing Favicons from websites.

If you want to grab a favicon (the little icons you see beside the address bar and in bookmarks) from a website (only for personal reasons — for example, having a shortcut on your desktop to the website), the easy way to do it:

http://www.your-website.com/favicon.ico

It’s always called favicon.ico, and its always in the root directory.
Good luck.

    The name favicon.ico and the root directory are pretty standard however it isn’t always so. Sometimes the file is called favicon.png and you can manually change the location using the html “link rel=”shortcut icon”” code.
