Hello,

First make sure that webcam drivers are installed in your laptop or you can

download the drivers for your webcam from the manufacture website. Click

on the below link to download the drivers.

Then to select your webcam in "Yahoo Messenger", login with your username and

password and follow the below instructions.

Click on "Messenger" ----> Preferences ---> At left side, click on "Webcam" option

---->Click on "Camera Source" button --> Set your webcam as default from the

drop down menu. Then click on "Camera Settings"-->Adjust the settings.
