You can use the Camera app if you have a webcam installed on your Windows 8-based computer or device. Record videos, take quick pictures, or use it in your messaging sessions.
When you launch it for the first time, you are asked whether you want to allow this app to use your webcam and microphone. If you click or tap Allow, you can use the Camera app.
The app offers very few customization options. To display them, right-click or swipe from the bottom edge.
The three buttons that appear offer the following options:
CAMERA options Use this button to set the webcam resolution, whether you want to use its built-in microphone, and so forth.
Timer Use this button to set a time when you want to take a picture or make a recording.
ViDEO MODE Use this button if you want to set the camera to take pictures or make video recordings.
As you can see, this app is straightforward.
The Mail, Calendar, People, and Messaging apps are well integrated and easy to use, even with a mouse and keyboard.
When you add an account in the Mail app, you can access it from the other apps.
You can lower your inbox space usage by using SkyDrive to share email attachments.
You can access the latest updates from your Facebook friends by using the People app.
By using the Messaging app, you can chat with your Facebook friends or with people using the Windows Live Messenger service from Microsoft.
