change icon of html file on my desktop

P: n/a
Hi,

When I save out an HTML file to my desktop (I'm using Windows XP), it
saves with the Firefox icon, presumably because I have Firefox as the
default application to open my HTML files. Is it possible to have the
desktop icon be the favicon.ico file of the web site from which I'm
saving the page?

Thanks, - Dave

For any given file-type in Windows, there can be only one icon. That
is, ALL files with that type must have the same icon.

However, if you are not saving actual files but instead are saving
Internet shortcuts, you can have a different icon for each (as described
by Ed Mullen elsewhere in this thread).

Have you been using Netscape and now feel abandoned by AOL?
Then use SeaMonkey. Go to <http://www.seamonkey-project.org/>.
