    What you are referring to is called a favicon.

    Create a square image and remember is going to eventually be 16 x 16 pixels.

    Select the image then click on the yellow name tag icon on the Infobar.

    Name the graphic favicon and press Add. Close the menu.

    When you publish your site, Xara automatically creates and tiny tab graphic.

    In whatever Xara product you are using with the available drawing tools. What did you have in mind?

    OK. If you have more than one object in your graphic, select all the objects first and group them (Arrange > Group)

    Jack.

    I just made my icon on the top part of the index page. Xara will do the rest when you upload the site.

    The icon will not be displayed on the index page only on the address bar.
