    Favorites bar icons question


    Some of my favorites tabs in the favorites bar show each websites unique icon, but some will only show the blue IE icon, even though a unique icon is shown in the title bar beside the web address. how do I get them all to show the unique icon?

    Does this happen all the time of just intermittently which pc's are prone to do. Reset IE from the Tools tab, Internet Options, Advanced tab then Reset.

    Won't doing a reset force me to start all over listing my favorites?

    Favicons ?

    If you clear temp internet files they will disappear.

    I used to save the favicons to a folder & assign them from there.

    No, it just basically disables your add-ons for the most which you could enable again is desired in Manage Add-ons of the Tools tab. It does not delete your Favorites.
