When you install a webcam to a PC there are two items that are installed. Firstly the driver for the camera and secondly the program to run this webcam. In laptops that have a webcam built in these two items are provided to you as default. Unless your model does not have an integrated webcam, in which case you have to attach an external one.
If you want to use the webcam in isolation then you use the webcam program and make videos and also single snap shots. But if you want to use it with an Instant Messenger (like Skype, MSN, Yahoo Messenger etc) then you have to configure the IM to use this webcam as default and whenever you are on Video Call, then on its own the IM will use this webcam when it gets connected to the other party.

How to turn on web cam


Troubleshooting listed on the Toshiba website:
The TOSHIBA Web Camera Application provides you with convenient operations and easy access to:
  • Preview the video that the Web camera is currently capturing, at the same time
  • Support 2D mode, Shutter Glasses 3D mode and Red-Cyan Glasses 3D mode
  • Capture still images
  • Record videos
If this utility or feature is not installed on your computer, you can verify if it is available for your specific model under "Downloads" on the TOSHIBA support web site (support.toshiba.com). Not all utilities are available for every model and operating system. When installing any utilities, install the TOSHIBA Value Added Package first.
To open the Web Cam:
  1. Click the Start menu. On Windows 8, go to the Start screen.
  2. Enter "Camera" into the search field. On Windows 8, type "Camera" while viewing the Start screen.
  3. Click "Web Camera Application" in the search results.
  4. The Web Cam will open and live video from the camera will be displayed.
  5. When you place your cursor over the web cam video window a row of icons appear at the bottom.

How do I access my webcam to take pictures and that sort of thing on my new hp laptop?


  1. Ensure the web cam is secured to your personal computer (PC). Most web cams use a "plug and play" principle. You plug the web cam in; it operates.
  2. Install the required software for the web cam to operate. This may involve placing a CD in one of the drives, or alternatively, downloading the software from a host site.
  3. Always reboot the computer after installing new software.
  4. Click on the desktop icon or the program icon to start the program. If the program is correctly functioning, the web cam will start producing an image of its view on the desktop. Adjust the web cam for a clear picture and the view you want.
  5. Most web programs will have a icon for "take picture." Left click on that icon or button. The web cam, like a normal camera, will then "freeze" that image and place it in a photo library.
  6. Open the photo library and examine the image just taken. Congratulations, you just took a photograph with your web cam.
