But desktop apps still support older types of webcams.If your webcam doesn’t appear in some apps but does in other apps, the app may not support the webcam. On Windows 10, the downloadable version of Skype and the preinstalled version of Skype are almost the same—but the downloadable version can see more types of webcams.

For example, Windows 10 Store applications (also known as UWP apps) only support newer types of webcams.

As Microsoft puts it, Windows 7 webcams may not work in Store apps on Windows 10.

This option was changed with the release of Windows 10’s April 2018 Update.

Previously, it only affected UWP apps and didn’t affect traditional desktop applications.

Your webcam may not work on Windows 10 for several reasons.

The usual troubleshooting steps apply, but Windows 10 has a new system-wide option that completely disables your webcam in all applications.

We’ve tried troubleshooting hardware many times only to realize that we didn’t plug in a cable properly. If you have a USB webcam, ensure that the webcam’s USB cable is connected to your computer’s USB port.

Unplug it and plug it back in to ensure it’s attached securely and isn’t loose.

On Windows 10, the Settings app has a few switches that disable your webcam in all applications.

If you disable your webcam here, even desktop applications won’t be able to use it. In general, the app permissions options under Settings Camera.

Under “Choose which apps can access your camera,” ensure the app that wants to access your camera isn’t listed and set to “Off.” If it appears in this list, set it to “On.” Note that traditional desktop applications don’t appear on this list. Traditional desktop applications can always access your webcam as long as you’ve enabled the system-wide “Allow access to the camera on this device” and “Allow apps to access your camera” options.
