Have a Cam Image (yes, mam, any cam) On Your Desktop!

665eClyde and I like to see what is going on in the world.  We have web cam images on our desktop.  In this example which by the way will work with Windows XP (any edition) and Windows 2000.  Other versions, such as ME will work too, but the instructions might be slightly different.

In this example I will use cam images from TripCheck.com.  We like TripCheck.com for when we make our little jaunts to wherever in Oregon.  Oregon has put webcams up all over the state, and you can go to the website and see what road conditions look like. These images are updated every 10 minutes or so around the clock.  On Clyde’s desktop, is  Bly Mountain Pass (by our land), Klamath Falls (cause he works there a lot), Mount Shasta (two views), Mount St. Helena (Washington) and I have the cam that is right out by our exit (Myrtle Creek) and one from the Panda Exihibit from the National Zoo.    When you are at a website and you see that they have web cams set up.

All you have to do is place your cursor over the image that is a webcam image:

1. Next click your RIGHT mouse button
2. The context menu will pop up as shown above, click “set as Desktop item”
3. Next you’ll see Windows wants confirmation: Click YES, you can drag the image where ever you want it on your desktop.
