    Title says everything.

    I can see that my webcam comes out under both "Sound, video and game controllers" and on "Imaging devices".

    Is it possible to disable the video part, and maintain the microphone active?

    Thanks.

    Imaging Devices missing in Device Manager and Webcam doesn't working

    Hi,

    Since you mentioned that the said driver is missing in Device Manager, what we suggest is for you to check in the Hidden Devices section on Device Manager. Kindly follow the steps below:

    • On the desktop, press Windows key + X and select
      Device Manager.
    • Click on View and select
      Show Hidden Devices.
    • Check for the webcam under Imaging Devices.
    • If the webcam is listed, then right-click on it and select
      Update Driver Software
    • Select Browse My Computer for Driver Software and follow the prompted steps.
    Please post back with the result for further assistance

    Can't Find WebCam Device in Device Manager


    In Win7 I'd do Device Manager > Imaging Devices > USB 2.0 PC Camera to find my USB WebCam and activate it and de-activate the monitor's built-in camera.

    But in Win10 Device Manager has no listing for Imaging Devices.

    Where in Win10 can I enable and disable webcams?

    My webcam and microphone is not working.

    Hi Ali,

    I will be glad to help you with the issue you have with Microphone and Webcam.

    What is the make and model of your computer?

    Did you make any changes to the computer prior to the issue?

    This issue might be because of settings related to Microphone.

    The issue cab be resolved by making Microphone as the default device and updating the sound card drivers.

    Make sure that the Microphone is not disabled and is set as default.

    Make sure that the microphone that you are using is not disabled and is set as default in the computer. Follow these steps to check this:

    a) Right click on the volume icon and select “Recording devices”.

    b) Now, right click on an empty space and select, “Show disconnected devices” and “Show disabled devices”.

    c) Select “Microphone” and click on “Properties” and make sure that the microphone is enabled.

    d) You may also check if the microphone that you are using is set as default.

    I suggest you to follow the below link to troubleshoot with camera in Windows 10:
