Windows 10 1903: set default webcam?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi Forum, again, it's...been a while.


I presently have a couple of webcams plugged into my desktop. I want to use one of them for its microphone and one of them for video (in different locations).

Disabling the microphone I didn't want was trivial, but I'm stuck wanting to use the webcams with applications which don't let me explicitly choose which one to use.

Looking through stuff for a couple of minutes, I realized that I didn't know where the option was, to then notice that the option isn't there at all.


The advice given:

1 - Disable the unwanted webcam.

I can't do this because with disabling the camera, the audio goes too.

2 - In Devices and Printers, right-click on the device you would prefer to be default and set it as default, in the case that it is not already default.

I would happily do this and be done with it, but that option...doesn't exist. I'm not sure how to proceed.


Any suggestions? Should I go and dig around in the registry until I find something?

Sig under construction.
