  2. Webcam only in B/W

    Hi Seth,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I can understand that it must be difficult for you when things are not working as it should.



    Provide us additional information to assist you better with this issue:



    1. What is the model number of the laptop?
    2. Is this an external/internal webcam?
    3. If it’s an external webcam, may I know the make and model of the webcam?


    I suggest you to refer the section ‘Roll back your webcam driver’ from the article
    Camera does not work in Windows 10 for the troubleshooting steps.



    Get back to us for further assistance on this issue with the required information. We will be happy to help you.

  3. Toggling Between Integrated Webcam And External Webcam.

    Hi Escribano - Jose Angel,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    You cannot use the integrated webcam as well as the external webcam at the same time and there is no option in Windows to toggle between them.



    So, in order for you to use the external webcam for both Windows Hello and other purposes, then you need to disable the internal webcam from
    Device Manager as you have described in your post.



    I suggest you to post your feedback in Feedback Hub
    as our developers are collating suggestions for the improvement of your experience in using the webcam.



    Please feel free to contact us back, in case you have any other questions/issues with Windows in future.

    Webcam not working

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    This issue can occur if the camera drivers are not up-to date, your anti-virus may be blocking the camera, or camera app is not installed properly. I would suggest you to follow the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the article:
    Camera does not work in Windows 10. You can also refer to the suggestion on HP article:
    HP PCs - Webcam Troubleshooting (Windows 10, 8).



    If you need any further assistance, please write back with the following information:



    1. What happens when you are trying to access Camera app?
    2. What is the exact error message you are getting?
    3. What is version of Windows 10 that is installed on your device?
    4. Are you using an external webcam? If yes, please help us with the make and model of the webcam.


    Regards,
