Change Favicon Magento 2 - Favicon is short for “favorite icon”, and refers to the little icon on the tab of each browser page.
Depending on the browser, the favicon also appears in address bar, just before the URL.
Favicons are generally 16 x 16 pixels or 32 x 32 pixels in size. Magento accepts ICO, PNG, JPG,
and SVG file types, although not all browsers support these formats. The most widely supported
file format to use for a favicon is ICO. There are many free tools available online that
you can use to generate an ICO image or convert an exiting image to the format.
You can change Favicon in Magento 2 by the following steps:
- Step 1: Create a Favicon
- Step 2: Upload the Favicon to your store
- Step 3: Refresh the Cache
