Webcam doesn't have to appear in Task Manager.
Task Manager lists processes and services. Webcam is hardware.

You should be able to find it listed in Device Manager (under Imaging Devices).

What are the other questions?

Separate or built-in webcam?

What OS are you using? Windows 10? Try running the built-in troubleshooters. The troubleshooters may find and fix something.

If you do know the make and model webcam, go to the manufacturer's website to download and install the applicable drivers.
