How Can I Start the LifeCam VX-3000 other than through Yahoo?

The LifeCam works great with Yahoo. But how can I start the cam independently? I can't find a shortcut to it on my desktop.

Look in my computer. You should see the web cam device in there.

Click on it and it will run independently.

I want to have YAHOO MAIL logo on desktop

Hello there!

Any of these ways will put a Yahoo! Mail shortcut icon on your desktop. If you want another Yahoo! shortcut instead of Yahoo! Mail, just substitute that Yahoo! page for Yahoo! Mail in the instructions.

To put a Yahoo! Mail shortcut icon on your desktop, go to Yahoo! Mail page , at the top of your screen click File, a menu drops down, put your mouse cursor on Send, a menu pops up, click Shortcut to Desktop.

Another way: Go to Yahoo! Mail page, right click on a blank space, a menu pops up, click Create Shortcut, a pop up asks "Do you want to put a shortcut to this website on your desktop", click Yes.

Another way: If it is listed in All Programs: Click Start > All Programs > right click on Yahoo! Mail > point to Send To and on the menu that pops up click Desktop ( create shortcut ).

Another way: Right click on desktop > point to New and on the menu that pops up click Shortcut > in the box that opens type > click Next and in the next box that opens type Yahoo! Mail and click Finish.

Another way: Go to Yahoo! Mail Page > left click and hold on the blue bar at the top of your browser window and pull down far enough to expose the desktop, or drag one side in or the bottom up far enough to expose the desktop (if it won't move, click the box beside the X at the top right corner of the screen to Restore Down) > left click and hold on the icon on the left of the address on the address bar and drag it to the desktop and release it, then you can minimize the window and left click on the icon and hold and drag it to where you want it on your desktop.
