Going to Admin sidebar -> Stores-> Settings ->Configuration -> General-> Design, there is no HTML Head section to expand and upload the new favicon.ico! I tried to copy the favico.ico to Magento_Theme -> web but did not help(cache was cleaned)

You can upload by following admin configuration path.

Go to Admin -> Content / Configuration -> Edit Default theme -> Go to Other Settings / HTML Head Click on 'Upload' button for Favicon Select .ico file

Hope it helps.

  • Thanks. I try to upload .ico file, but it says "We don't recognize or support this file extension type."!

  • Please check the internal issue link github.com/magento/magento2/issues/5478 Oct 31, 2016 at 8:16
  • Is there alternate way to have the new favicon as uploading still is the issue. Do you know the correct path?

You can upload it from admin.

Admin >> Content >> Design >> Configuration >> Select your current theme from list >> HTML Head.

You can see here Fevicon Icon field, Upload you fevicon icon here.

Run command for clean cache : php bin/magento cache:clean
