Hi all I am asking this on behalf of a silver surfer,who I am going to visit tomorrow,he is running XP and has apparently installed a web cam but he cannot access it he tells me there is no icon he can click on as a shortcut. I cannot advise him as I dont have a web cam,but I have told him I know somebody that can. Is it the same as putting a shortcut on the desk top for other programmes. Thankyou for any help Regards Dakar

look for the program that came with the camera. then look for the exe file of the program and double click it to see if it starts the software running.
