  • Click "Start," then "All Programs" or "Programs," and select the "Toshiba" folder.
  • Click on "Utilities," then "Web camera application." The application will open, although it may minimize automatically to one edge of your screen. If this happens, hover your mouse over the utility to make it open.
  • Click the icon that looks like a camera and video camera to start up the webcam. This will turn the camera on and show you what your image looks like. Click the camera icon to capture a still image, or click the video camera icon to record a video.
  • Click on the icon that looks like a camera with a series of sliders underneath it to open the settings panel. Adjust the brightness, contrast and other settings by clicking on the vertical tabs for each setting and sliding them left or right.
  • Click the icon that looks like a camera with a paintbrush to add special effects. You can enhance contrast, add frames to your image, or select a screen cover that will appear if you want to temporarily hide your image with a photo. Return to this screen and select "off" to remove the screen cover.
  • Click the icon that looks like an ID card to set the face-recognition software that automatically unlocks your computer when the camera recognizes your face. This software is not available on all models of Toshiba laptops, so you may not have this icon. Follow the on-screen prompts to set this feature.
  • Click the icon that looks like a wrench below your image on the video/photo screen to set other properties for the camera, such as the folder where you want images saved and the format you want them saved in. You can also click the resolution menu to adjust resolution.
  • Exit the web camera application by clicking the "X" in the upper-right corner of the window.i hope this post we be helpful,dont forget to leave your comment by saying how helpful this post is
