How do i put a webcam icon on my desktop? (on windows xp)?
In order to use my webcam to take photos and such, i have to go to the control panel, select "printers and other hardware", then click on the "camera" option.... what i'd LIKE to do is to put a camera icon on my desktop so it will be a much faster, easier operation. But, when i right-click on the camera icon in the control panel, all i get for options is Take Pictures, Rename, Delete, and Properties.... no way to duplicate the icon so i can send one to the desktop, or to make a shortcut. Any ideas how to accomplish this.
Its a cheap Centrio cam and doesn't come with software.... just uses the generic webcam software that comes with XP.

Every XP I've plugged in my webcam it shows up in my computer! Not sure why it wouldn't do the same for you!
