    That's called favicon. I guess the easiest way is to replace the old default favicon to your new one. and then upload it to your server.

    Make your logo look best you can gif at 16x16 then upload here will convert to .ico file. It can be transparent too.
    http://www.favicon.cc/

    Place favicon.ico file into root of site and into <head>
    <link href="/favicon.ico" rel="icon" type="image/x-icon">

    Look in your current theme header it may show a link rel="shortcut icon". Older browsers it used to be favicon would load from root. But you can place it anywhere now. So either in root as I showed or replace the favicon in your theme folder that is currently linked to.
