Windows XP had a nice little tool build in in which you could easily test your webcam. You just had to doubleclick it under Scanners and Cameras in My Computer. Unfortunately, this option doesn´t exist any more.

But here is how to test your webcam under Windows 7 and 8:

  • Start up your PC and make sure your webcam is connected.
  • Doubleclick the exe file.
  • Select the right camera and click Connect.

Done, you will see the picture of your webcam.

Note: If you get an application error when running the program, you have to install .net Framework.
