Webcams are great tools to use for communication and security purposes. At times, you may want to have your view of your webcam fill your screen. This can help you view the content, especially when you are not sitting at your computer. The way you expand your webcam to your full screen depends on how you access the content. Some webcams require special software while others can be viewed through a browser or media player.
