The webcam on your Dell Inspiron is fun and useful if you want to video chat or take and send photos of yourself to people online. The best part about this webcam is that it is very user-friendly. Dell has designed their computers so that there is very little you need to do in order to access and use the webcam. Of course the first step to using the camera is turning on the camera. Luckily this is a fairly simple procedure that shouldn't take up very much of your time or energy.
