Please sir, Educate me on how to use my web cam. I don't know how to use it. where and where to click
Here are the basics.
Before you can use your webcam, you have to install it. Installation means running any setup software that came on a disc with it, and plugging it in to a USB port (unless it's built in to your laptop or something).
You need to know if your webcam is installed. To find out, open "My Computer". If it's installed, it'll be right there as part of "My Computer". If you open it, you should be able to see it working. If it's not doing this for you, then you need to focus on getting it installed.
If the webcam is working, then it becomes a facility that's available to programs on your computer. What that means is, if you use a program such as Skype for making phone calls, that program can use the webcam to show the other person your face. You don't need to do anything special, if your webcam is installed, Skype will find it. This should apply to any other application that uses a webcam.
If you're not sure what you're doing, perhaps you've got the webcam working, but you don't realise it because you haven't chosen an application that can use it. It's like installing speakers, but not playing any music yet ;-)
Either choose your own application, or take my suggestion of Skype.
