Does anyone know if there's a driver I can use to make my webcam work on Windows 10?

I tried to make my webcam work on Windows 7 first (my brother who used this computer before me said it worked fine for him), and it did not work, so I upgraded to Windows 10 to see if that would include driver software that worked. The camera still doesn't work. Any ideas?

There isn't a fixed version about this software available for downloading. The developers insist on using the HP Support page to download the necessary drivers on your computer.

There is also a troubleshooting page available for this procedure:

My advice is to go to Start > Settings > Update and Recovery > Recovery > Advanced Start-up > Restart. Once the PC boots, select Troubleshoot > Startup. Press the option 7 when prompted, install the drivers and accept the warnings then reboot again and the camera should work.
