View Full Version : Losing my IE webpage icons

For some reason, my pc keeps resetting my webpage icons back to default in IE. Any way to stop this?

Running Win2K, IE 6.0.28

if there ever is an answer to this i'll let you know...or i'll let you know...which ever comes first. But I do know that my IE since it's conception has always done this.

I believe the images are kept in IE's cache. You could make it bigger and see if they stay around longer.

They are all stored in the cache, so they will disappear eventually. What I do, is I save the icons to a folder if I want to keep them.

You can find them by typing favicon.ico after the URL and then saving them.

For example, to save DVDTalk's, go to:

Save it to a folder on your harddrive (maybe as dvdtalk.ico). Then in your favorites folder, right click on the link you want to add the icon to and select Properties -> Change Icon -> Browse to the folder where you saved the icon.

Thanks Blake! I know the icons aren't a big deal or anything, but it just got annoying when they went away.
