I have an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC, with a built in webcam, but i have no idea how to use it. I can't find the program anywhere on my computer to access it. I got on facebook recently, and facebook asked if it could access my web cam to take a live picture, I said yes, and it automatically turned it on! So I know it works I just don't know how to get to it myself. HELP!

that depends on your usage, application or software. for example, if you are using skype, select the menu choice for settings and choose video. what program do you want to use your webcam for? you may have to get software to use your webcam. that software will have the webcam controls.
I have an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC laptop and it has a built in webcam. You can see if yours does by going to this free webcam test site. If yours is a desktop model then you won't have a webcam and will need to use an external one that plugs into your USB port.
