Hi AroundAgain I thought I had asked this question before but was not sure so I went though all my posts up untill the beginning of this year and never saw it so apologies so now have to remember what I did

Hi again AroundAgain have just looked at my old post I clicked on the link posted by sillbill and that does not help and neither does my manual if you can call it a manual and cannot remember what I did.Cannot find anything on the Laptop about a webcam.

Just remembered that I had a program called Lifeframe on my laptop which is something to do with the webcam.I just entered Lifeframe in start then search and installed Lifeframe but now when I click on it it says the model does not support lifeframe.Can someone explain.

It is a Asus K73E which according to the small booklet I got with it is a notepad not sure what the difference is.

I installed lifeframe 3 today and got the message when I clicked on it that this model does not support lifeframe I then uninstalled it and installed lifeframe 2 and then got this message lifeframe 2 runs on Asus laptops only so where now. I did click on john bunyans link which did work and took he photo but could not work out how to save the photo to a particular folder.I checked my old posts back as far as Jan this yearbut did not see that post did not realise it was so far back.
