How do I access my webcam anytime I want too????


You have to open the webcam software to activate or startthe webcam. There is no button to push or switch to turn on. Thewebcam software is somewhere in the program list. Click Start/Programs thensearch for any reference to webcam or camera. Sometimes the webcam mightbe inside one of the manufacturers folders in the program list so search thefolders for it. Some manufacturers have something like EntertainmentExperience that will open and show all the entertainment devices such as thedvd drive, webcam, media player, etc. if you see it click it to launch itthen click on the webcam or camera icon.

Try using ManyCamYoucan always download Manycam and install it. Go to www.google.com and inthe search box type: "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site.

More Tips For Windows 7


So I been Messing Around With Windows 7 and Created a list of new things for people that don't know much about windows 7. <br /> <span> <p><b>Minimize (Almost) All Windows:</b> <b>Win + Home</b><br /> <p>This combo lets you send all open windows packing--except the one that's currently active. Sure beats clicking Minimize on a bunch of individual windows. When you tap the shortcut a second time, it restores all previously open windows.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Make Windows Transparent: Win + Space</b><br /> <p>This is the keyboard equivalent of mousing over the transparency tool in the right corner of the System Tray--great for those times when you need to something on the desktop (like a gadget) but don't want to minimize all your windows. After tapping <i>Win-Space</i>, your windows will stay see-through until you let go of the Windows key.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Quick-Launch Taskbar Apps: Win + (1-9)</b><br /> <p>As you know, Windows 7 makes it a snap to "pin" frequently used programs to the taskbar. But did you also know that these programs are automatically assigned a number and corresponding Windows-key shortcut? Just press <i>Windows-1</i> to launch the first pinned program (the one closest to the Start button), <i>Windows-2</i> to launch the next one, and so on. Fastest app-launching known to man! Except, of course, for this...<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Quick-Launch Any App: Hotkey</b><br /> <p>Like Vista before it, Windows 7 lets you assign a quick-launch hotkey to any installed program. Just right-click the program's icon, choose <i>Properties</i>, and then click the <i>Shortcut</i> tab. Click once in the <i>Shortcut key field</i>, then press the hotkey combo you want to assign (<i>Ctrl-Shift-H</i>, for instance). Click <i>OK</i> and you're done! Assuming you have a good memory, app launching doesn't get any faster than this.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Dock Active Windows: Win + Left or Right Arrow</b><br /> <p>A great shortcut for users with widescreen monitors, this combo docks the active window to the left or right half of the screen (depending on which arrow you tap), at the same time maximizing it top-to-bottom.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Magnify Your View: Win + (+)</b><br /> <p>Windows 7's built-in magnifier lets you zoom in wherever you place your cursor. Just tap <i>Win-plus</i> (that's the Windows key and the plus key) to enable the magnifier and set a 200% zoom level. When you mouse to any edge of the screen, your view scrolls accordingly. The more you tap the keys, the higher the zoom. Of course, you can just as easily zoom out again with <i>Win-minus</i>.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Open Presentation Settings: Win + P</b><br /> <p>Good news for business users constantly struggling to get Windows to cooperate with<a href="http://www.pcworld.com/products/home_theater/projectors.html">projectors</a>: A quick tap of <i>Win-P</i> activates a monitor-settings panel. Click <i>Duplicate</i> or <i>Projector only</i> to send your display to the big screen, or <i>Extend</i> if you've connected a second monitor and want extra screen real estate.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Create a New Folder: Ctrl + Shift + N</b><br /> <p>Forget the old way of creating new folders. In Windows 7, all it takes is a tap of <i>Ctrl-Shift-N</i>. This works in any open Explorer window, but also on the desktop. After the new folder appears, just type in a name as usual and hit <i>Enter</i>.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Bring Gadgets to the Fore: Win + G</b><br /> <p>Now that Windows' gadgets are no longer relegated to the Sidebar, they're free to sit anywhere on your desktop. Of course, that means they can get obscured by other windows. As you now know, a tap of <i>Win-Space</i> makes those windows temporarily see-through, but what if you want to put the gadgets on <i>top</i> of your windows? No problem: Just tap <i>Win-G</i>.<br /></span>

How to activate built in webcam.


When your computer boots up does the small light next to the camera come on for a second of two and goes back off. If it does it means that the camera has been detected by the system. You can check by going to the settings, control panel, system, hardware, device manager, imaging devices and see if the camera is shown in the list. If it is the the computer has configured the camera and this can be confirmed by right clicking on the camera and checking the properties to see what it says.

Unless the notebook came with a program directly associated with the camera, then the actual camera operation will take place in the program that you will be using the camera in like Skype, Yahoo or some other video messaging program, at which time during the configuration you will tell the program what device you want to use for the camera, usually from a drop down list, select your camera and it should start working with the program. In other programs you can use it as a capture device by selecting it as the device to use to capture a picture. Good luck, RAC

How am i change of drive icons of window xp?(such as-c drive)


There are two ways to create a drive-specific icon. The first step for both is to determine the full pathname of the file containing the icon you want, as well as the index of the icon within that file. To view the icons contained in an EXE or DLL file, right-click any shortcut that links to a file (as opposed to a system shortcut like My Computer) and choose Properties. On the Shortcut tab of the resulting dialog, click the Change Icon button. Click Browse and select the file whose icons you want to peruse. When you find the one you want, count off the icons to determine the correct index. Start in the top left corner with zero and count down each column, then to the right. For example, icon 12 in C:\ Windows\System32\Shell32.dll is a picture of a memory chip. Make a note of the full pathname of the file and the icon index, then click Cancel, and Cancel again—you don't actually want to change that shortcut's icon. The Microsoft Windows files moricons.dll and progman.exe, both found in C:\Windows\System32, also contain numerous icons.
One technique for assigning a drive-specific icon uses a file named Autorun.inf in the root directory of that drive. Launch Notepad and enter [autorun] on the first line. Enter ICON= on the second line, followed by the full pathname of the icon-holding file, a comma, and the icon index. It might look like this:
[autorun]
ICON=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SHELL32.DLL,12
Save the file as "C:\autorun.inf" (you need the quotes to prevent Notepad from appending the .txt extension). Now restart the computer. When you open Windows Explorer, the drive should display its new icon.
The other technique involves editing the Registry. Launch RegEdit from the Start menu's Run dialog and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrenTVersion\Explorer.
If a subkey named driveicons is present, open it; if not, right-click in the right-hand pane, select New | Key and name the key driveicons. Under the driveicons key, find or create a subkey named C (or the letter of the drive whose icon you want to change). And under this C key find or create a subkey named DefaultIcon. Double-click the (Default) entry in the right-hand pane and set its value to the full pathname of the icon-holding file, a comma, and the icon index. Again you'll need to restart Windows.
If one of these techniques seems not to work for you, try the other. If you apply both to the same drive, the Autorun.inf file takes precedence.


I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.

Desktop icons and start button issue


Hit CTRL-ALT-DEL

Task manager will come up.

Then click File, New Task.

Then type explorer.exe

This will load the things that you're missing. These things are probably missing because you have a virus. Make sure you do a scan.
