I use IE6 and save my websites in my favorites (not the desktop??), many websites have fancy ICONS which are only temporary but you can save them pretty easily if you don't save them, they revert to the "DULL IE ICONS"
First, make a new folder on your C Drive, I made C:/ICONS
1. Open a site and add it to your Favorites and if the site has a special ICON you will see it in your favorites. Unfortunately, it's only temporary & will go away in a day or two.
2. How to save the ICON..Go to IE TOOLS>INTERNET OPTIONS>TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES>SETTINGS>VIEW FILES> there you will see type files in Alphabetical order, scroll down until you find ICO files, you will see the ICON for the site you just added there.
3. Copy that file to the folder you created above and name it for the site, as an example change the name from FAVICON.ICO to say YAHOO.ICO if it's a Yahoo ICON.
4, Final step to save the ICON, click on Favorites in IE, choose the site & right click on the site, Click properties, Click Change ICON, CLICK BROWSE, select the folder C:/ICONS and the ICON you saved, then it's permenent
I'm not sure this answered your question but Hope it helps!!
