Re: How to turn off the camera in windows 8

Hi, I am experiencing the same problem and have tried some of the techniques you have tried but with no success.Ihave noticed that if I leave my computer on but is inactive after a period of time it shuts itself off but when I reboot after turning off the camera beomes active again. Have you got any answers on your related question?

hi Team

I found the Answer it here

in

 

Task Bar -> show hidden icons->find a option which says gesture control - > give a right click - > close .

turning off the gesture control disables the auto camera on issue.
