Please give us the make and model number of your computer. Number is usually underneath if it is a laptop.

If the webcam is a separate device let us know the make and model number of that too.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Click on the Start Orb and type in camera.

The results will bring up the webcam functions such as camera and video recorder. These are used solely for the user sitting in front of the computer. Any recordings need to be shared after the camera has been used.

In the case of Skype and chat / messaging applications, they simply access the camera and use it from within their software which allows it to be shared realtime over the Internet or however the software intends.

Would you go to an auto repair shop & tell them you have a problem with your car, then not tell them the year, make & model??

We need to know the make/model & model number of your computer. I'm guessing it's a laptop? Possibly a Samsung?
