I know about favicon to attach an icon so that it shows up when users bookmark my site, but when a user wants to have a desktop link to my site, how do I have my icon shown instead of the generic one? The icon is larger than favicon and I cannot find out how to attach it.
I'm not concerned about creating the icon, just where to put it. Does it go in the root directory with a different name than favicon.ico? There should not be any right clicking to activate the icon; it should automatically be created when the user chooses "create shortcut" in Windows. That is the way it works now with any site that has created a desktop icon.
