Just bought an acer aspire 5532. On the start menu I used the search bar. I had just started typing web camera and it showed up on the search. I clicked on it and the web camera appeared with me on screen! I didn't want to have to keep going into search for the web cam, so I right clicked the icon and clicked on pin to task bar. So it's there automatically.
Install your web cam settings in your pc
jUSt click start (windows sign at bottom left of screen)then go to the search option and type in 'web' cam. you will have options pop up to use crystal web cam...she's a beauty too. I LOVE my ACER
