Windows 7: icons for websites in favorite list defaulting

icons for websites in favorite list defaulting

Small issue but irritating...

I am using IE 9.0.5 on Win 7 x64 Ultimate. In my favorites list many of the links have icons preceding the description that are unique to the site. But may on them have defaulted to the IE icon--a sheet of paper with the "e" on it.

I imported some of these bookmarks/favorites from Firefox but not all of them have defaulted.

Is there a setting in Internet Options that allows these icons to be recognized and displayed in the favorites list?

Hello DWFII

Usually these will regenerate themselves if you click on them and re visit the site related to them.

They will do in time (or usually do). Other options are to visit the site and delete and re add them one at a time depending on how many you have of course. Also some web pages/site don't display a customised icon and will use the default one.
