Some old Asus laptops have a slider button that enables the camera. Some devices may not have any camera switch or privacy shutter button.

If you can’t see any camera icon on your keyboard, press the Fn + F10 button at the same time. This is a hotkey button that enables the camera. Depending on your device, this key may also not work because of your laptop model. You can try finding the appropriate camera switch button by visiting the Asus official website.

If you are using a USB or External Asus Camera, then this method can be very helpful for you. Many USB webcams available in the market are compatible with the standard USB Video Class (UVC). These cameras can be operated using the in-built UVC driver in Windows.

  1. Open Device Manager and expand the Cameras or Imaging Devices option.
  2. Right-click the webcam driver and select Update driver.
  3. Select Browse my computer for drivers.
  4. Choose the Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer option.
  5. Select USB Video Device and then select Next to finish the driver updating process.
  6. Click the Close button.

Sometimes your device or the app in which you want to use your Webcam may not access your Laptop camera. These are Windows privacy settings and if they are turned off, you may not use your camera.

To fix this issue, right-click on the Windows icon and select Settings. Click on Privacy & Security and then tap the Camera option.
