Favicon usually appears in the browser like below figure.

Favicon is .ico file which will be having size 16*16 pixels.

First, put the favicon.ico file inside the root directory.

To display in master page you have to write like below in the page inside<head> </head> tag.

<link runat=”server” rel=”shortcut icon” href=”favicon.ico” type=”image/x-icon”/>
