    Front facing camera is completely gone

    Hi Shawn,

    Please answer these question to assist you better.

    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    • Did you make any hardware and software changes in your computer prior to this issue?

    Follow the Steps below and check if that helps.

    Run the Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter.

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with hardware and devices. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with the Bluetooth adapter. Refer these steps:


    • Press Windows key +X, select
      Control panel.


    • Change the view by option on the top right to
      Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the
      view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Hardware and devices troubleshooter.

    • Restart your computer and check if the issue is resolved.
    Also open Device manager and click on View and select
    Show hidden devices and check if you are able to find front Camera;
    Hoover mouse point and click on Scan for hardware changes.


    Do let us know if front facing camera starts working. Thank you.

    Camera App Windows 10 starts default with front-facing camera


    Hi all,

    the Camera App on my Windows 10 somehow starts directly with the front-facing camera. I'm using a surface pro 4. I remember, it used to start with the main camera as default. Is there anyway to configure it to start with the main camera. I couldn't figure it out from the setting. (I'm not the selfie type, so this annoys me quite a bit).

    Bests,

    windows 10 camera can't show my face

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
