    Webcam Issues-Windows 10

    Tried several well known webcams, all plug and play. Nothing is acknowledged in device manager. Despite upgraded drivers, and changing to different SB ports, nothing works. Is there anything specific that needs to be changed or added in settings or security perhaps that will help? Even a local computer tech could not get one of three webcams to work. What gives?? Help!
