Windows 10: Usb camera driver (or maybe software?)

  1.    29 Jan 2016 #1

    Usb camera driver (or maybe software?)


    I found a USB camera, and I want to use it easily (without disabling the laptop's built-in camera to make it work through the USB camera)
    Is there a software, that can easily let me control the usb cameras? because this camera had an installation CD with the driver in it, but I lost it. (maybe it should go to software sub forum )

    Thank you !

    *Update: The laptop actually switches to the USB camera automatically when I use Windows built-it camera app, so I don't need any other software

    The software for the camera is required so Windows knows about it and how to run it. You should be able to download from the maker's Web site if still in business.

    Ah, I thought there could be some universal app or auto finder.
