Hi. I am Rick and I will be your Computer Expert. I will do my best to assist you with your question.


Go to the control panel, then find the device manager. Find where the camera is in the lists, probably under "imaging devices" and then right click on it. Select "disable." To enable it again, do the same and select "enable," which will be where "disable" was.

Hi, thanks for info but I know about disabling it in DM, I want to be able to start it without having to restart the laptop every time.

I know of no other way to turn it off other than to disable it.
