A shortcut (favicon.ico) icon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon) is a 16 X16 image that is sent to the browser for use in the address bar and tabs to help identify the site. Drupal aids you in customizing this often-overlooked detail for your site, even for each theme. You have the same options as with the custom logo: you can either place the icon on your server and then enter the path to the custom icon, or you can use the Upload Icon Image field to upload the file via HTTP. As with the custom logo, the upload doesn't occur until you click the Save Configuration button.
