    My camera app opens but just shows a black screen. I have a MSI MS-16P6 laptop. It is enabled in privacy settings and in MSI's SCM. I have updated the driver, uninstalled / reinstalled the driver, and uninstalled / reinstalled the app.

    If you have the camera connected to the computer, I would suggest that you disconnect the camera and then try to open the Camera app.



    If the camera app opens, follow the steps below:

    • Press “Windows key + C” from your keyboard to open “Charms bar”.
    • Select “Settings” option.
    • Select “Permissions” option.
    • Turn on “Allow this app to access your: Webcam and Microphone” option.
    • Lose the app by pressing “Alt key + F4” from your keyboard.
    • Reopen the Camera app.
    • Connect your camera and then check how this app works.
    Goodluck!

    Missing apps: Store, People, Photos, Games & Camera on upgrading to 10


    Thanks for replying spunk. That's the 'alphabetical' list I was referring to, none of these apps are in that 'All apps' list. Any more suggestions?

    WINDOWS 10 CAMERA APP NOT WORKING

    Hi,

    We appreciate your time and effort for getting back to us.

    If you are referring to the Camera app then, I suggest you to uninstall the apps which came inbuilt with Windows 10 using Windows Powershell and reinstall using Windows Store. Follow the below steps:

    • Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell in the
      search bar.
    • Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
    • Enter the below command to reinstall the Camera app.
    get-appxpackage *Microsoft.WindowsCamera* | remove-appxpackage



    After performing the above steps, install the Camera app form the Windows Store.

    Reference: Refer to the following Microsoft article on
    Camera app and webcams help.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/camera-app-faq

    Note: The steps for Windows 8.1 applies to Windows 10.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
