The amount of tools on your toolbar or dashboard is limited by your OS. The older the OS the less features you have.
From the top I have (Vista)
Quick Capture - (2 film frames)
Video Effects - ( 2 theatre masks)
Privacy shades - (window blind)
Settings- (2 gearwheels)
Video calling ( 2 head and shoulders)
Help (Question Mark)
Microphone/ Video mute ( mic & cam)
Logitech Homepage ( Logitech logo)

You should check your DirectX program and maybe download the software from the site
Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to check the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click 'Start', click 'Run', type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK
Run through the tabs checking the 'notes' windows for information
The version will be shown on the 'Systems' tab

Procedure to re-install Logitech software
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

What is the logitech softwere?


To operate a webcam you need a driver, this is the term for software written to operate hardware. The driver may be part of a software 'bundle'. This bundle is all the extras like a toolbar, video and webcam capture, Settings with all the refinements to get the best image and Video effects etc. If you were to download the Logitech software it would download as an Installer Wizard and contain the whole bundle

If you wish to download the software visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model. Click on the photo to navigate to the support page.

When i plug in the webcam and i click the logitech webcam software to take pictures.it says no logitech webcam deteched.


Make sure you have the logitech webcam support software loaded - Microsoft DirectX - version 9 or later.
If you have been using your webcam in another location it can remain hooked up that application even if you exit it correctly.
You will have to re-boot the webcam software by unplugging it for a couple of seconds and then restart the logitech toolbar.
Failing this - reinstall the software

The image from logitech E2500 qickcam is split into 4 vertically squashed images. It was installed from the CD that came with it. Any solutions welcome please. from Peter


Check you have no 'Fun Filters' selected - its the only place I have seen 4 split images on my Logi webcam
It will be within the 'Video Effects' menu ( 2 theatre masks )
Start your cam in 'Quick Capture' first ( 2 film frames with 1 head and shoulder pic )

Failing that I suggest you re-install from the website
