Or if you have more then one website in Kentico installation, delete the default one from root ~/CMS/favicon.ico after restart of Kentico the default links to it disapear. Then you can add your own links for favicons in the head section of master page or in the other places (good article describing the head section in Kentico)

you can generate new one and upload it over Kentico one in root:

Clear out cache to see it...

Always try to change it before you go to production... some browsers (like IE) seem to auto cache the favicon for ages.

Small Tip - Adding one more point to Dawid's answer as I personally faced this problem, unless you will not delete default favicon from the Kentico's root installation it will keep appearing on your wesbite even if you add a favicon through a HEAD HTMl webpart.

In that case your webiste will have HTML for two favicons like

<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="/lolinc/media/Images/yourwebsite.ico" />
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="/favico.ico" />

The default icon will always render later than your website's icon and will appear no matter what.

Thanks, Chetan
