    Web Site Icons


    When I pin some web sites like Netflix and Facebook, the tile shows a logo. With most, it shows the explorer logo. How do I fix my web sites to show a logo on the tiles? Thanks.

    The website favicon needs to be sized to 32x32.

    Hello Fmw, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The favicon used in the icon of pinned websites will largely depend on what the website uses and if it's 32x32.

    However, if you like, you could use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to manually create a shortcut to any website you like using any icon you like. Afterwards, you could pin or use it where you like.

    Hope this helps,
