|Well now this is embarrassing! I can access the camera from Skype and by all accounts it will connect as it used to, I have not tried contacting my daughter yet but I will do in due course.|
The thing is I have an icon in the start menu which technically does nothing! I expected it to be a bit like the tablet, click it and your face or whatever you are looking at (depends on the setting) appears on the screen.
Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings. ... (this all applies to the touch screen, I used the Start Menu)
Tap or click Privacy, and then tap or click Webcam.
Set Let apps use my webcam to Off or turn it off for specific apps.
I did all the above and I discovered which apps will use the camera. Needless to say I have no idea how to use it in Paint. I guess what I want to know now is why the camera does not fire up when the button is pressed or why it does not start a default app of sorts. I seem to have lost my way somewhat in this thread but the gist of it is that the button does nothing.
Thanks Derek, Regards
