PHP Enhancing a Simple PHP Application Integrating Validation Errors Displaying the Error Message

Frog Icon will not leave my "Title" space in localhost!

I have a bizarre question I cant quite seem to answer. I've been following the "simple php application" series and was getting ready (i.e testing my new abilities in PHP) for the "enhanced php application" series when I noticed something odd... No matter what I do in localhost, every one of my pages titles (including other projects) now have the frog icon next to the title! This is weird since my test projects don't point to any css at all...yet it still appears in the title section. Even when I view the source for the page it doesn't show the frog icon as being a part of the title at all... I have isolated the "Shirts 4 Mike" css and all files into a separate folder and it still does this. So my question is this...why is the Shirts 4 Mike frog showing up on the title of each one of my pages in each one of my projects? Even without pointing to css? And how do I get rid of this?

You are likely looking at the favicon.ico image. That is basically the tiny image that appears in the browser tab. It should be in the root folder of your installation. You can change it by simply replacing that file with a new one of whatever you want. Simply google favicon generator and you'll be able to upload a picture and generate a new favicon. Just replace the old frog one with the new one.
