  2. Windows Camera app not working properly

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that the Camera app stops recording and I will be happy to answer your query.

    First of all, I would suggest you to run the inbuilt troubleshooter and check if it helps. Right click on Start>control panel>type troubleshooting in the top right search tab> Select View All from the right column> select Windows Store Apps> follow the onscreen
    prompts.

    If this does not help then follow the steps listed below:

    You may try to uninstall the apps using Windows PowerShell and reinstall using Windows store.

    Follow the below steps to uninstall the Camera app.

    • Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell in the search bar.
    • Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
    • Enter the below command to reinstall the Camera app.
    get-appxpackage *Microsoft.WindowsCamera* | remove-appxpackage

    Note: After performing the above steps, install the Camera app form the Windows store.

    You may check the functionality of the camera app after reinstalling the camera app.

    Also, see: Camera app and webcams help

    camera not working

    If you have the camera connected to the computer, I would suggest that you disconnect the camera and then try to open the Camera app.



    If the camera app opens, follow the steps below:

    • Press “Windows key + C” from your keyboard to open “Charms bar”.
    • Select “Settings” option.
    • Select “Permissions” option.
    • Turn on “Allow this app to access your: Webcam and Microphone” option.
    • Lose the app by pressing “Alt key + F4” from your keyboard.
    • Reopen the Camera app.
    • Connect your camera and then check how this app works.
    Goodluck!
