You can rename your png file to .ico, but first you will need to perform the below manipulation:
From Windows Explorer:

  • Click on "View" tab
  • Then in the Advanced section, uncheck "Hide extensions for file types is known"
  • Then rename your file as .ico.

PS: Don't forget to re-check the "Hide extensions for file types is known" option.
