Question

Restoring webcam software (dell laptop)

So I hard-deleted the webcam software by accident, using Destroy Windows 10 Spying software. Is there anyway to restore it? I looked on the drivers etc on the Dell site but I can't seem to find it. It's a dell Inspiron 15-7559. I've tried third-party software for webcam but the GUI is too small (I made a separate post about this problem).

Where can I find the software again? anyone? The driver is not missing, just the software to use the webcam...

Most likely it's not a driver. If you can't find it, ask Dell Customer Service.

I assume you didn't take the trouble to call Dell with your questions. Nice to see that you prefer the help on this forum above their own help.
If the link below doesn't help, it might be better to call them.
