Can't find web cam

I can't find where to start my webcam on my Satellite C655D-S5529.  It worked in April but wanted to use it a few days ago, I couldn't find anyway to start it.  The webcam is in my Device Manager and says that the device is working correctly.  Thank you for your help.

Go to Computer/C: Drive/Program Files (X86)/Toshiba/Web Camera Application/TWebCamera.exe.

Start/All Programs/Toshiba/Utilities/Web Camera application. The control bar should appear from the left side of the screen; if not, hover your mouse pointer near the middle left side of the screen.

Re: Can't find web cam

Try typing "Camera" at the Start screen to search for the Camera app. Is it found?

I haven't heard from you in a couple days but wanted to add that if it's not found in the search, you can try checking the Store for the Camera app in Windows 8. You might also try checking this article:
