    Change default settings for a webcam?


    Is there any way of changing the default-settings of a connected webcam? No, I'm not asking to change the default webcam, I'm asking about changing the default exposure-, white-balance- etc. settings so they don't have to be adjusted every single god damn time you boot up.

    I need to chose the default webcam, because UWP apps work bad when wrong camera is chosen at the start. For example, camera app will not let me change the camera if the first one do not works with it as intended. That is why I really need the ability to
    chose the default webcam. And that' not only me, many people seek the answer for 2-3 years here.
