In Skype for Windows 10 (version 14), when you want to make a video call, change your profile picture or send a video message, you may be asked for permission to access your camera.
To grant permission for Skype to use your camera:
- Go to Windows Start and select the Settings gear.
- Select Privacy, then select Camera.
- Under Choose which apps can access your camera, toggle Skype On.
- Restart Skype and go to your Skype Audio & Video Settings to verify the correct device is selected within Skype.
Note: If you have any issues using your camera with Skype, make sure your webcam meets the minimum requirements for Windows Store apps.
