How to Scan/Read and Open QR codes in PC and Laptop

In one of our previous posts, we talked about QR codes, what is it and how to scan QR codes in your mobile devices. Now you know what QR code exactly is and you can even open that hidden links inside it. What if you don't have any mobile device and you stuck in the problem to open QR code. You actually can scan QR codes and find URL with your PC or Laptop. 

All we need:
Camera on computer
Adobe AIR

If you don't have an adobe AIR on your computer, then you can download it from there.
Now when we have installed Adobe AIR on our computer successfully, we need to download a special software which also will use our computer camera to scan QR code. 

Now open that program, and place that QR code in the center of you cam. You can also open QR code on your computer screen and turn the camera to your screen. It will scan it and open the website URL placed inside QR code.
