When you are done with the installation, click the finish tab.


If you already have a user name for Yahoo, then click on option 2 "Sign In"

If you do not already have a user name for Yahoo, you'll need to create one by clicking on option 1 "Get a new Yahoo ID".

After you have created an ID, you can then sign into Yahoo Messenger.


After you have installed your Yahoo Messenger with Voice, let's go preview your camera with it.

To preview your camera, you will need to go to "Messenger" and then "My Webcam". You should then see your webcam displayed within the Yahoo window. Whether you see an image or not in the Yahoo window, please go to the next step below.
