What Happened to My Favorite Icons?

Episode 1771 (1:27:25)

Brian from Arlington, TX
Microsoft Edge

Brian switched to Edge, and he can't create Icons for his shortcuts. He tried going back to Internet Explorer and he can't do it now there either. Known as Favicons, they are favorite icons for your favorite shortcuts. But recently, favicon creation has become more complicated due to sizes, bit rate, color depth, extensions, etc. But it's also gotten easier with online favicon generators. But if the website doesn't have a favicon, you end up with just an icon based on your browser. So it comes down to if your favorite website has created all the necessary files to create an icon when you save them.
