Sharing files is related to permissions. Maybe that is the problem.
There are many online video tutorials.
Here is one of them:

it is like for some reason when i send it to the desktop it is like it is an icon not athumb nail all i see is the icon above not the thumb nail and it appears to go directly to the windows media player library
not to the desktop
oddly enough when i take a photo it goes directly to the desk top and i can see the actual judt the video does not work. But I have installed the camera that came with microsot and am am able to use that and get the videos to go to trhe desktop and show the acual video not the icon

You are telling a lot.

Reinstalling the software that came with the webcam, does that help?
'Send it to the desktop', do you mean that you copy the capture to the desktop, or is that some setting in the webcamsoftware telling it to see a life picture of the what the webcam is currently recording?
Richt clicking on the icon on the desktop, what are the properties?

when you take a video and stop it down in te left hand corner it shows the video amall thumbnail like you right click on that thumb nail and if gives you several options go to file delete email/ it used to when i would click go to file once you see in the file folder where you are supposd to see the thumbnail as the actual video you can then drag and sen where ever you want it usually i save to desktop and from there send it or keep it in a file. Now when I open file instead o seeing the actual thumbnail and the video opened in Windows media play what i see it the icon above and it goes to the desktop that way
