  • It should be the favicon.ico in your SharePoint root. Just do a search for that icon on your web front end and replace it with the icon you want.

  • To use a different site icon.

    1. Start up SharePoint Designer 2010
    2. Open your site
    3. Navitate to the Master Pages library
    4. Click on the the Master Page that your site uses (this is v4.master for a default team site)
    5. Click on the Edit file link under Customization
    6. Locate the tag "<SharePoint:SPShortcutIcon " in the code
    7. Replace the url to favicon.ico with your own ico file.

    To convert a .gif file to .ico format, you can ask a graphical designer, or use one of the many software utilities available online to do this for you. I.e. Pixel Toolbox.
