Add Scanners and Cameras Icon to the Desktop in XP/2003

How can I add the Scanners and Cameras icon to the desktop in Windows XP/2003?

To add the Scanners and Cameras icon to the Windows XP/2003 desktop follow these steps:

  1. Open Registry Editor.

  2. In Registry Editor, navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace
  1. Create the following key:

{E211B736-43FD-11D1-9EFB-0000F8757FCD}

(just copy/paste, including the brackets)

Note: As always, before making changes to your registry you should always make sure you have a valid backup. In cases where you’re supposed to delete or modify keys or values from the registry it is possible to first export that key or value(s) to a .REG file before performing the changes.

  1. Close Registry Editor.

There is no need to reboot. Just wait a few seconds and see how the icon appears:

Done!
