Boring icons all the same

  Willow12 16:51 03 Jul 03

Does anybody know is this click here will work on my OS. I use Windows XP Home and my Favourites Icons keep standardising themselves to an e on a blue page. If I can't use this download how else can I keep the icons that first appear when I set a site as a favourite?

"how else can I keep the icons that first appear" - generally speaking by not deleting your history or your temp internet files.

OK - I have just read the blurb on the site you mention; apart from not deleting your temp files, I don't know a way around it.

Copy the icons from temp files into an icon folder you could create, then right click on the link in fav's. then select change icon, select the folder: icons (or the name as which you gave the new folder) and select the correct icon, next time you wipe temp files it will not go.

How do I view my temporary internet files?

Go to Tools in IE, then internet options, and then click Settings then View files.

They should be .ico files.

Also dont create the new folder in Temp internet files make it in C:\Icons or somethings.

To answer your original question:

I use Favorg with XP and it works fine.
