With most modern browsers all you should need to do is to upload your favicon to the root of your board (the same place where you find config.php). Once uploaded then you may need to close your browser window and then open another browser window and/or clear your browser cache.

You will have to load your favicon file to your board using ftp.

Thank you again :) I changed ico and works well, including the Safari browser, but the image might be too big. What is the recommended size ico to 16x16 or 32x32, or?
Best regards,

At one time favicon.ico used to be 16x16 but these days different browsers/operating systems use different sizes.

You might get a better understanding if you use Mr Google as there is far too much information out there to post here.

I have found this site to be very useful for generating favicons from existing images. http://www.favicon-generator.org/
