My webcam shortcut not available


By default, the webcam icon does not appear on the desktop. However, if you want a quick access to your webcam application, you can create a shortcut on the desktop:
  1. Click Start, and then All programs.
  2. Click the Acer Crystal Eye webcam folder.
  3. Right-click Acer Crystal Eye webcam, click Send to and then Desktop (create shortcut).

I have a built in web cam how do i get it to work


Hi p_seiod

HP COMPAQ PRESARIO CQ50-215NR WEBCAM FUNCTION

To initialize some notebook webcams, moving the mouse arrow/cursor to the far left of the screen activates a hidden webcam control panel in which the webcam can be activated by clicking.

(My) Computer > right click on the camera icon at the bottom of the window (scroll down if necessary)> send to > Desktop (create shortcut) > double click on the new desktop webcam icon.

If there is still a problem with the webcam, it might be a webcam driver problem.

Reinstall the webcam drivers and software > restart the computer > reconnect the webcam > (My) Computer > right click on the camera icon at the bottom of the window (scroll down if necessary)> send to > Desktop (create shortcut) > double click on the new desktop webcam icon.

If this does not work it may be faulty and should be returned under warranty. If there is no warranty or the warranty period has elapsed, you might need to buy a new webcam component which can be ordered from HP Support Parts Store site:

I would like to create an icon for easy access to my webcam


Click on the start button, go to Programs (like you normally do to get to your webcam) and then go to your webcams software folder (again, like you normally do). Instead of double clicking the icon, however, right-click, hold it and drag it to your desktop. Let go of the button on your desktop, and select CREATE SHORTCUT HERE from the menu that pops up.

Now you should be able to double click that icon to get to your webcam software.

Why not in windows explorer. Right click on My Computer > Explore. It should list your cam below Hard disk Drive , CDROM drive, as Scanner and Camera as USB Camera / Composite Device. Dbl click to start the Cam

Cannot find the icon or whatever in order to use the crystal eye


Right click on an open space of your desktop. Select New>Shortcut.

When the Create Shortcut window comes up, click Browse.

Double-click "Computer".

Double-click "Acer (C:)" or your C: drive. It may not be named Acer.

Double-click "Program Files".

Double-click "Acer Crystal Eye webcam".

Click "Acer Crystal Eye webcam" next to the small icon. (NOTE: Do not select the one that just says "Crystal Eye". It is only an icon, not the program.)

Click OK.

Back at the Create Shortcut window, click Next.

Type in whatever name you want to give, or leave the default as is.

Click Finish.

Icon appears on desktop. Double-click the icon to begin the program.

Quickcam camera icon is missing?


Do you mean the desktop icon itself, or the taskbar icon?

If you just want the desktop icon back, navigate to "program files / logitech/ quickam" folder. Right click on the "quickcam" (it will have a pic of the eyeball camera). Click "create shortcut". Drag that shortcut icon to the desktop.

To make the the taskbar icon, make another shorcut, and drag it to the taskbar.

Good luck!
