How to import your AIM buddys into Gmail


To set it up, just head to the <a href="http://www.aim.com/import-to-gmail/">Import to Gmail</a> page and log in to AIM. Once you've logged in, it will prompt you to enter your Gmail credentials as well. When it's done, it will tell you your contacts are imported-that's it! If you head to Gmail, you should see all your AIM contacts pop up in the Chat sidebar. Note that it only imports the 38 contacts you chat with the most, so if you have more than that, it looks like you'll have to add them manually. The Upsides: You Only Need One Login; You Get AIM on Android The Main idea behind the switch is that you won't have to deal with two separate logins within Gmail from now on. The other really cool part about this is that you can log into both protocols from one IM client. Since nearly every IM client under the sun has both GTalk and AIM, this isn't a big deal for desktop users, but it does mean that Android users can now IM their AIM buddies right from Google's official GTalk app, which is great, since it's probably the best IM client on Android.<br /> The Downsides: It's Confusing and Kind of Buggy Unfortunately, the whole implementation still seems confusing at best, and buggy at worst. Your AIM buddies will no longer see your AIM screen name when you log in; instead it will create a new contact for them using your Gmail address. However, I had the problem where some of my contacts weren't even showing up in the sidebar-some were only showing their Google Talk contacts, some were showing only AIM, and some were showing up twice, like they used to (though some showed up after a small wait, so perhaps it just takes awhile for everything to register). It's not combining them, either (which would be awesome)-it's just excluding some contacts from my buddy list entirely. In addition, the 48 contact limit for the importer is kind of a drag if you have a lot of AIM buddies.<br /> If you use a desktop IM client, of course, you'll be unaffected by all this, and can continue using GTalk and AIM separately. In fact, we'd recommend doing so. Unless you're really itching to get AIM in the Gmail web interface or on Android's Talk app, using a desktop client is still the easiest way to get access to both, and we'd recommend against importing your AIM contacts into Gmail-at least for now. Have you tried the new AIM integration in Gmail? How does it work for you? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.<br />

Icons appear on my wallpaper page that are of programs I wish to keep for reference, but do not want on my wallpaper


Open Explorer (right click on the start button), create a folder named Storage (or any name you like), then drag the icons into that folder.

Another method would be to right-click on the icon "send To" My Documents" or to a Compressed Folder.

How can i use my web cam to my PC?


Position your webcam where you want it. Most people choose to position it directly on top of the computer monitor, because this area is closest to the face and provides the most intimate view of the subject.
Set up an account with Yahoo!. This is a site that allow webcam users to communicate with one another. To set up an account, click on "Create an Account" on the main screen. You are asked to enter your name, birthdate, a screen name and a password that you will use for the account
Download Yahoo! Messenger by going to the Yahoo! Messenger website and clicking "Download." Click "Save" to save the Messenger program to your computer. Wait for the program to download. Click "Run" to install Messenger on your computer. A Yahoo! Messenger icon will be installed on your computer's desktop. Double-click on the icon, and Yahoo! Messenger loads. Log in to your account by typing in your selected screen name and password and clicking "Submit."
Connect your webcam with Yahoo! Messenger by clicking on the "Create and Update" tab on your Yahoo! Messenger software. Choose "Site tools" and "Webcam." Select "Start Your Webcam." Your webcam is now connected to your Yahoo! Messenger software, and you are ready to communicate with others by using your webcam.
Use your webcam. Select "Webcam Upload" and "Broadcast" on Yahoo! Messenger. A webcam window will appear on your computer screen. To share what you are seeing on your webcam with other Yahoo! Messenger users, click on "Chat" and type in the screen name of the user you wish to communicate with. Click "Submit." A new window will open to chat with the other user. Click on the video icon on your chat window to allow the other user to see your webcam. To continue or stop broadcasting, either keep the Webcam window open or close it to stop broadcasting.

You can use the standard alone messanger by going to www.aim.com and download the software. Also, you can use instant messaging if you sign into your mail through the website mail.aol.com From there, look for the yellow running man icon on the right. You can then click on that and sign in AIM (it stands for Aol Instant Messaging).

How do you make an aim


Go to www.aim.com and click the link 'Get a screen name' in green letters on the right side of the screen, near 'Mail'. After you create your screen name, either download the latest AIM (I highly recommend it) or just do AIM express. Have fun! vote for me

How to use the video chat in macbook??


just checking, but did you use ichat? ichat is the chat client for AIM on a mac. they show icons next to the people that you can audio or video chat with. it shows a video camera next to those who you can mutually video chat with. if you click the icon, it makes a video chat. if you were looking to use a service other than AIM, i suggest meebo.com. you just hit the webcam icon once chatting with someone and you are ready to go (assuming you have the isight webcam in your macbook).
hope this helps ;-)

Logitech quickcam chat live video


Broadband will work better and smoother for sure. If the cam has a mic, then it would work for almost any chat system you can get. You will get both video and audio.
