I like the proprietory icons from my favorite websites to show up on my desktop rather than the generic, dull IE icon. A few of the icons from my favorite websites do appear on my desktop, but not all. How can I get the icons onto my desktop. Currently, when I'm at a website, I click on "File", "Send", "Shortcut to Desktop". Some of the icons transfer, but others don't. Please let me know what I can do to get websites that have their proprietory icons to transfer to my desktop.
