That's called a "favicon" which is a 16x16 or 32x32 pixel graphic. There are many websites that will allow you to make your own and download it. Most modern browsers accept .png format favicons but to be safe you should probably still go with an .ico format.
Most browsers will look for a "favicon.ico" file in the same directory as your index.html file so if you upload it there you should be good to go. If you want to use a png or put the icon somewhere else you'll need to include a link in the head of each html file (which requires editing the code with a text editor).
- Code: Select all
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="img/favicon.ico">
