How to download favicon.ico for any site

(Jide Ogunsanya) #1

Atimes, you might want to download favicon from any website and here is how :

You can just enter http://example.com/favicon.ico into the URL window and download the favicon just like any other file.

When it displays in your browser, just save it like you would any other image. Generally, favicons are in the root directory of the web site, but sometimes they are in another folder somewhere, in that case you will get a “file not found” error, and you will have to view the source and find the favicon tag (<link rel=“SHORTCUT ICON” href=“somepath/favicon.ico”>) and enter the path to download the icon.

But it’s not nice to steal people’s icons.
