Magento 2 shows me this path to the favicon in the source:


I delete this file and ad my own favicon to my theme here:


But it creates me always the Magento favicon in the static folder, not my favicon. What's wrong?

If you are using magento 2.0.2 then go to

Stores > Configuration > General > Design.

You can change your favicon by upload it.


As Omitri wrote before, the favicon you want to use must be placed in:


There are couple more steps you need to perform to see it live, though:

  1. Clear the cache of your browser
  2. Clear pub/static and var directories without removing .htaccess files

Here's a link to docs.

  • If you use Adobe Commerce, the favicon should be placed in /app/design/frontend/<Vendor>/<Theme>/Magento_Enterprise/web/favicon.ico. Jan 12 at 16:50

The file location should be: /app/design/frontend/xx/MinimalBlack/Magento_Theme/web/favicon.ico
