Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.

Resolving Software Compatibility Issues

The Software Compatibility Troubleshooter

Most applications designed for Windows 7 and earlier versions work automatically on Windows 8.1 and newer. However, when an older program fails to work properly on your current OS-for example, it runs slowly or not at all-you should attempt to resolve the problem by using the Program Compatibility troubleshooter, which runs the software while simulating the behavior of an earlier version of Windows. Often this relatively simple process can resolve the problem and allow the program to run. You can open the troubleshooting tool by following these steps:
1. Open the Control Panel.
2. Under System and Security, click Find and fix problems.
3. Within the Troubleshooting screen, click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows


4. On the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter screen, click Next.
5. Select the program that is having problems, and then click Next.
6. Once Windows has modified the settings, click the Try recommended settings to run the application using the recommended compatibility settings option.
7. Click Test the program.
8. Once the program opens, you should evaluate to see if the problems still occur. 9. Close the program and return to the troubleshooting wizard. Click Next.
10. Choose one of the following three options, or click Cancel to abort the process: a. Yes, save these settings for this program b. No, try again using different settings c. No, report the problem to Microsoft and check online for a solution
11. If the program behaved correctly, you should click Yes. The troubleshooting is complete. Click Close to close the troubleshooter.

If the Try recommended settings do not work, you should rerun the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter; but this time, select the Troubleshoot program option. Follow the wizard again and work through a number of scenarios, such as •The program expects to run on a previous OS, such as Windows 8, 7, Vista SP2, or XP SP3. •The program needs additional permissions to run, such as an administrator. •The program needs a different display environment, such as reducing the resolution or DPI scaling. The wizard also offers a combination of these scenarios. Frustratingly, the wizard does not allow you to go backward-if you make an incorrect selection, you need to cancel and rerun the wizard. In addition to the troubleshooter, you can also configure compatibility settings directly on the application by using the Compatibility tab found in the application's properties. 1. Locate the application executable or the application's shortcut within File Explorer (from the Start screen, right-click the application tile and select Open file location). 2. Right-click the application executable or the application's shortcut, and then click Properties. 3. On the Compatibility tab, select the settings you want to modify and click OK. 4. Rerun the application. Determine if the fix worked. Using the compatibility setting directly on the application allows you to configure additional settings; for example, you could do the following: •Reduce the display •Force the application to run in a 640 × 480 screen resolution •Apply the application fixes to all users on the computer You can also launch the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter from within the Compatibility tab.

DPI Scaling If you are using a Surface or Ultrabook, you may notice that these new devices have extremely high screen resolutions. By default, Windows scales the screen to magnify the size of text and other items on the screen so that they appear larger and are easier to view. You can modify this by launching the display utility directly by typing dpiscaling.exe in the Start screen, or it can be run from the Control Panel by performing the following steps:
1. Open the Control Panel.
2. Click Appearance and Personalization.
3. Within the Display section, click Make text and other items larger or smaller.
4. On the Display screen, change the size setting as required, and then click Apply.

In skype it says your webcam is used beign other applications but it is not so nd i cant do video callin..model is aspire 4720 acer

Check the task manager for any application related to web cam like yahoo messenger or any other chat application. You will be able to find them in under process tab. Highlight the application then click on end process. This should allow you to launch Skype.
To disable the application you found launch system configuration utility by typing msconfig on the run command. Go to the Startup tab and uncheck the application. Click on apply and then restart. That should allow you to launch Skype whenever you want.

    How to lock my pictures

    Once you have jailbroken your iPhone. You'll got a Cydia icon on your SpringBoard.
    1. Launch the Cydia.
    2. Go to Search Tab and search for Lock Down and tap it.
    3. Tap Install button at Top-Right and then Confirm button at Top-Right to begin installation.
    4. After completion, go back to Springboard where you'll find a brand new icon i.e. LockDown.
    How to use LockDown
    • When you will run the Lockdown application for the first time, you will be asked to setup a Safety Code and a Password. This password will be used to unlock any locked application and to open Lockdown itself. Safety code is useful in case you forget your LockDown password.
    • Once you have setup the Password and safety code, you will see all your iPhone applications listed on next screen.
    • Select any application you want to lock, a Lock button will appear. By tapping that button your selected application will be locked and a little lock icon will appear next to that locked application.
    • Now if you close LockDown App and try to open you locked application (Mail app in this example), you will be prompted to enter the password to open it. Use your Lockdown password to open that App.
    (Once you open the app, use it and when you close the app it will be automatically locked again. So no need to re-lock it in LockDown.)
    Lets check other options in Lock Down.
    • Tap LockDown to launch it. This time you'll be asked to input the password to open LockDown. Do it.
    • Tapping any locked application in LockDown will prompt you if you want to Unlock it. Pressing the Unlock button will perform the unlock that App.
    • Locked Applications button at the top right quickly shows all the locked application only rather scrolling through all applications to locate locked ones.
    • Under Settings tab at Bottom, following options are available:Locking Options
      • Lock All Applications
      • Unlock All Applications
      • Lock This Application (ON/OFF)
      Password Management
      • Change Saftey Word
      • Change Password
      • Forgot Password
      Other Settings
      • Lockdown Dylib (If you turn it OFF, even if you open a locked application it will not prompt for password. So, it's helpful when you are using your iPhone by yourself. See the details in screenshot. )
      • Lock Icon Moving (When turned ON it do NOT let anyone to move any icon to preserve your arrangement of icons.)
      • Lock App Deletion (When turned ON it do NOT let anyone to delete any application without your permission.)
      • Enable Launch Button (When turned ON, Lockdown will show a launch button when you open a locked application and input password.)
    I am using this great application since the day it's supported with iPhone OS 3.0. It's working like a charm and will keep it installed because of its usefulness and surely recommend it.
