How do I take a photo from my laptop's built-in webcam?

I have an HP G60 notebook computer and want to take a photo using the webcam. I see in devices that it's there, but there's no button to use for taking photos. Help!

HP laptops used to include a program associated with the webcam called "Quickplay". You can usually find it in the Start menu, but if not, you can install it from HP.

Newer models use the Media Smart brand name. For webcams, you'll need to download and install Cyberlink YouCam:
