If your Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 laptop or maybe your tablet comes with a really good webcam, then most likely you rely on it more often than others. Your webcam, or integrated camera, as some might refer to it, does two basic jobs – it takes pictures or videos. It then saves them to a folder that you are probably wondering where exactly is located. The camera app is quite basic, and there are only 3 other settings inside the app – the Camera Roll which lets you see the pictures and videos; timer where you can set a timer before it starts shooting and exposure where you can change exposure levels.
