Fix Camera Recognition on Windows 10

Windows 10 is pretty good about detecting any issues with its OS, including its camera. However, it is not always perfect and things happen. Some users have issues with their built-in webcams and luckily, there’s an easy fix.

Take the steps below
  1. Start Menu < Imaging Devices, Cameras (or Sound, video and game controllers)
  2. Notice if your camera has been recognized. If you don’t see it, click on Action from the top left menu.
  3. Click on Scan for hardware changes

Remember if these steps don’t work out the first time, it’s recommended that you restart your computer and try again. If that doesn’t work, it might be the following issues:

  • USB port issue
  • The camera itself needing replaced
  • Incompatible or outdated driver
  • possible anti-virus program blocking camera
  • privacy settings

If you’re needing your camera, be sure to give permission, check your anti-virus program or try the steps above to alleviate the problem.
