How do I make those icons by the address bar for my website?

Question by Ashley F: How do I make those icons by the address bar for my website?
How do I create those tiny icons on the web address search bar for my individualized web site? For example, Yahoo has a red “Y,” Google has the lowercase blue “g,” and Twitter has the blue highlighted “t.”

I love these tiny links buttons when you add them to your firefox toolbar and I would like to add a tiny picture to my address bar of my web site too.

It’s a 16×16 picture (.ico) image. There are a number of picture editors acquirable on line or you can use any graphics program that will save in .ico format. Like, you can use MS PAINT to do it:

1) Open paint
2)At top, click “Image”
3)click attributes
4)In width, and heght boxes type in height:16 width:16
5)Create your image! *paints uncontrollably*
6)Click “Save As”
7) As study type “favicon.ico”
8)Click Save!
9) upload 2 server (of course)
10) YAYS! your website looks prettiful when added as a favorite!

Then once you’ve created your favicon, you include it on your page using this snippet of HTML in the tag:

(Change “favicon.ico” to the location of your favicon of course.)

The Yahoo toolbar built-in apps have icons supplied by Yahoo. You can’t change them. The Yahoo custom apps that you create will try to use the favicon of the web site or you can select an picture from the list supplied by Yahoo. You can not add to the list. The following wiki article speaks about favicons:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon
There are times when Yahoo can’t detect the favicon and you get a default picture that looks like a star. What you see is what you get (WYSIWG).
I already indicated that you can’t supply your own picture to the Yahoo list of icons.
If you want to make a recommendation to Yahoo, click the gear picture at the end of the Yahoo toolbar, click Share Your Ideas. My individualized view is don’t waste your time.
