    DaVita: I posted this in your other thread, but hope it helps...

    Below are hacks to turn off the camera click, and turn off the start up sound, these were originally posted by tj!2k6, i take no credit for them. you will need a Registry Editor. PHM Reg Edit is free, i use it to edit my Registry. Keep in mind to turn your phone off, then back on after each reg edit, or they may not stick. Hope this helps. also at the bottom is the link to the Everything Q Hacks section. Lots of great hacks to help you Q function MUCH better.

    No Camera Click Sound______________________________________

    Go to:
    \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Pictures\Camera\OEM\Sou ndFile

    Change the string/value:
    \windows\shuttersound_02_secs.wav

    http://www.everythingq.com/forum/mot...acks-1037.html

    to say:
    \windows\*none*

    if you can't find the key it's most likely because the video "part" of the camera is called upon from "inside" the camera application, which would mean it's hard coded and not changeable..

    maybe you have something similar you can copy to your start menu or to a speed dial

    for real ?.... not sure if that's the same on the Q1, if so you could rename that one to the one which is linked for the dedicated camera key.

    it's here: http://mq.roeiboot.com/apps/link_files/

    fyi: on the Q9c there is also a file in the Windows directory called Video Camera.exe, which not surprisingly starts the Video Camera, the link file calls upon a file called vcam.exe (which is also in the Windows directory)
