    Skype for Business' access to camera

    Thanks, it worked!

    For anyone else having the same problem:
    When activating the aforementioned setting you should restart Skype for Business completely. Mine Skype for Business still did not get listed in the lower list, but the camera is now activated.

    Skype for Business' access to camera

    Scroll down. Those are only Store apps listed. Other apps are listed below. First you turn access on, and then you have the list off other apps

    Here is mine

    Edit: and maybe some other program is using your camera at the time... only one can use it (at the time)

    Skype for Business' access to camera

    Yes, unless I have missed something. If you mean Privacy -> Camera -> Skype for Business, then activate/deactivate. My problem is that Skype for Business is not in the list of applications under 'Camera'.

    Screenshot attached.
