  2. camera on laptop not working with skype windows 10

    Hi Nicky,

    Since your camera has worked before, there may be changes on your computer that caused it to stop working. For us to isolate this problem, we would like to know the following information:

    • Have you performed any updates or made any changes on your computer before the camera stopped working?
    • Is the camera working with other apps?
    • Have you set Skype as one of the apps that can use the camera?

    While waiting for your reply, let's verify if Skype is one of the apps that is allowed to use the camera. Follow the steps below:

    • Click the Windows logo, then select Settings.
    • Click Privacy, then Camera.
    • Make sure Let apps use the camera is turned on.
    • Under Choose apps that can use your camera, make sure that Skype
      is set to ON.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    To change the camera in Skype application from built in to USB follow the steps mentioned below.



    1. Open Skype application by searching it on the search bar on taskbar.
    2. Now click ellipses next to your name on the top left corner.
    3. Now click on Settings and select
      Audio and Video settings.
    4. Under Camera select the
      USB camera from the drop down list.

  4. I cannot see myself on the camera with Skype

    Skype?

    As this is a now quite established messenger system of sorts perhaps a Skype feature for people skype names so perhaps some real time problem solving/discussions could be mounted?
    Just a wee suggestion.
    What does everyone else think?
