Windows 8.1 / IE 11 and Windows 10 / (IE 11 / Edge) rely on the browserconfig.xml file and a set of icons. But Windows 8.0 / IE 10 doesn't support it and expects the meta msapplication-TileImage, which should be a 144x144 image. Is it really useful now that Windows 8.0 accounts for a little less than 2.5% market share? (versus 24% for Win 8.1 & 10 combined)
The idea here is to make this icon optional. In other words, disabled by default, with an option to generate it again.
Of course, if we decide to go this route, we will first perform compatibility tests to check the outcome.
Note: last time I checked, Coast by Opera was using this icon when it couldn't find a dedicated PNG image.
Why doing this?
I just created my favicons, I paste the code given by the site, just, I'd rather put a folder of favicon, so I modify each line, then I do the test and I have this error message, why
Some Windows 8 / IE11 tile(s) could not be found or are corrupted.
Is you site live? Could you give me its URL?

When you created your icon with RealFaviconGenerator, you probably indicated you would place your icons in the root directory of your web site. Then, you changed your mind and edited the HTML code to indicate /favicons as a sub directory. Am I right?
The problem with this is that browserconfig.xml doesn't have to be declared... when it is in the root directory. But it needs to in the other cases.
My advice is to create your favicon again, and this time indicate the definitive location of your files. This is way safer than editing the generated code and files manually.
