How to enable device permissions – Windows

  1. Select Start > Settings Privacy & security > Camera, then make sure Camera access is turned on. This setting lets any user on the device choose if they want apps to be able to access the camera.
  2. Make sure Let apps access your camera is turned on. This setting allows you to choose if any of your apps can access the camera. It doesn’t set which specific apps can access the camera.
  3. If you don’t see an app in the list, it might be a desktop app. Find Let desktop apps access your camera and make sure it’s turned on. You can’t change camera access settings for individual desktop apps.
  4. Follow the same steps above to check Microphone permissions
  • Note: If you can’t change the Camera or Microphone access setting, you’ll need an administrator on the device to turn it on for you.
