I just plugged in the Microsoft webcam to my PC but I can't see any application to record a movie or take snapshots. In Windows XP there used to be a option in My Computer.

Are there any settings related to this?

My model is VX-700, it is working fine with Google and Skype... but how do I record directly?

What is the name/model of the webcam? Microsoft should have a page dedicated for the drivers and software for the device. – qroberts Oct 18 '10 at 18:52

It's not possible to take screenshots natively in Windows 7. You will need a third party utility
