I installed win7 but webcam icon is missing


Hi,

Try the following tips to see if you can get the Desktop icon back.

1. Right click the desktop
2. Select View -> Show Desktop Icon
3. Make sure the option is checked.


If this does not work, then you can try and go into the installation directory for your webcam software. For example, when you install the Webcam software, it may be installed in C:\program files\webcam brand name



In the installation folder you should have a .EXE file. If you right click on the .EXE file you can then select "Send To" then select "Desktop(shortcut).


You can also use this method by going to Start > then in the search box type the name of your webcam and you should get a list showing your webcam program. You can right click this and create a desktop icon as well.


Comment back if you have any questions.


Regards,

Activating the webcam
The drivers for the webcam are pre-installed and an HP Webcam 1000 icon displays on the desktop. Double-click on the icon to activate the webcam. The blue light illuminated next to the webcam lens, just above the LCD screen, indicates the webcam is on.

If double-clicking on the icon does not activate the webcam, do the following activities:

Click Start, then right-click on My Computer, and then select Properties.

On the My Computer properties window, click on the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
Click on the plus ( +) sign next to Imaging Devices and locate the webcam item in the device list.
If the webcam is not listed, do the following activities to install the driver using the webcam driver recovery.
Click Start, click All Programs, click PC Help & Tools, and then click HP Application Recovery.
Select Driver installation and click Next.
Select the HP Webcam 1000 driver from the list, and click Install.
If the webcam is listed under Imaging Devices but there is a red X on the icon, the webcam is disabled. See figure below.

To enable the webcam, right-click the HP WebCam 1000 icon and click Enable. The webcam icon should display on the Desktop.
Alternate locations for the webcam icon
If the webcam is installed but the icon is not displayed on the desktop, look for the webcam icon in one of these alternate locations.

Click Start, and click Control Panel , and then click Scanners and Cameras. The webcam icon should be displayed with the other devices.

Using the Webcam Diagnostic Test
To ensure the webcam is operating, do the following activities:
Right-click on the WebCam icon, and then select Properties.
Click on Test Camera under Diagnostics on the General tab.
The test should only take a few moments, but allow the test to complete operations by itself.

How will i restore my webcam icon though the driver is already installed on my laptop?


Method 1 : Re-installing the Webcam software will make the Icon restore.

Method 2 : As you have already installed the driver, you need to browse for the icon to the "Program files" folder which is under the driver ( usually c:\program files) and go to the webcam software folder.

For example, if i installed cyberlink webcam there will be a folder by the name "Cyberlink" under the program files.

Open the folder and you will find the icon.
Right Click the icon and select "Send to" and the select "Desktop (create shortcut).

That's it.
