1. Make sure your webcam is connected to the computer.
2. Open the "Start" menu.
3. Search for "Device Manager".
4. Under "Imaging devices" look for your webcam, right click it and choose "Properties".
5. Open the "Details" tab.
6. Under "Property" select "Hardware Ids".
7. Copy one of the IDs and try to search it online.
