  • the favicon.ico just lives in the root of the site by default, do you mean an application icon?

  • Hi Jamie, a favicon is the icon you see in a browser address bar on most site today.

  • Did you ever get 'an icon to appear in the browser tab area' for you application (also known as a favicon!)?

    ... I did put it at the root of the WEBSITE, that didn't work.


    Then I put it at the root of the application (which for some reason needs to be a sub folder of a web site in IIS), then the icon worked fine.


    'it' is a ico file named favicon.ico 


    Hope this helps.

  • I have directory browsing enabled, and placed it at the root level (favicon.ico) 16x16 but nothing shows up.

  • My favicon.ico is in my website's root directory. I have run my code under 5 different servers.  All but one looked for it, found it, and used it in the brower's tab for that website.

    I am now running MS IIS v1809 on my PC.  IIS is squirrely.  On occasion, the browser debug shows it looked for it in the default directory but got a 404 for the GET.  Other times, there is no error message.  In all cases, it does not use the favicon.ico.  It seems oblivious to it.  I suspect MS supports it if you know their way of doing it.
