    Skype for Business' access to camera

    Scroll down. Those are only Store apps listed. Other apps are listed below. First you turn access on, and then you have the list off other apps

    Here is mine

    Edit: and maybe some other program is using your camera at the time... only one can use it (at the time)

    Skype for Business' access to camera

    Thanks, it worked!

    For anyone else having the same problem:
    When activating the aforementioned setting you should restart Skype for Business completely. Mine Skype for Business still did not get listed in the lower list, but the camera is now activated.

    Desktop app not accessing camera in Windows 10

    Thank you Anthony. Just to clarify that I tried the suggestion you mentioned:

    1. Go to a site that wants to use your microphone and camera.
    When prompted, choose Allow or Block (this option is missing)

    1. Under "Privacy and security," click Site settings.
    2. Click Camera or Microphone.
    Turn Ask before accessing on or off (when toggling this feature I still am not able to use the camera)

    In the windows 10 settings I see some desk top apps that have camera permissions but Chrome is missing.

    Thanks again for your assistance.
