How to add favicon.ico in ASP.NET site

The solution structure of my application is:

enter image description here

Now I am in Login.aspx and I am willing to add favicon.ico, placed in the root, in that page.

What I am doing is:

<link id="Link1" runat="server" rel="shortcut icon" href="../favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link id="Link2" runat="server" rel="icon" href="../favicon.ico" type="image/ico" />

Also I have tried:

<link id="Link1" runat="server" rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link id="Link2" runat="server" rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/ico" />

But these aren't working.

I have cleared the browser cache but no luck.

What will be the path to the favicon.ico from:

  • Login.aspx

  • Site.master

Thank you.

The login page's URL: http://localhost:2873/Pages/Login.aspx and the favicon.ico's URL: http://localhost:2873/favicon.ico.

I am unable to see the favicon.ico enter image description here after changing my code as:

<link id="Link1" rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link id="Link2" rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/ico" />

Some troubleshoots:
1. Check if your favicon is accessible (correct url) ,goto view source and click on the favicon link
2. Full refresh your browser by Ctrl+F5 every time you make changes.
