Hello Carley,

Thanks for your message. It sounds as though you are talking about a Favicon, is that correct? To add your own favicon to your site (the little image that appears next to your URL of the browser window), here is what you need to do:

1. Click on the "Properties" tab on the right-hand Sidebar.
2. You will see a "Favorites Icon" field (the last item at the bottom of the Sidebar). Click on the browse button to the right of the box to browse your desktop for an image to upload.
3. To see what your favicon will look like, save and preview your page.

Please note that Internet Explorer doesn't allow favicons to be displayed next to your URL or on the tab of the window. The favicon will be displayed if the site is bookmarked and in your Favourites folder.

The best option would be to change to Firefox which does show the favicons in all three areas.

I hope you find this helpful, Carley. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

Cheers!
Brianna
