  • VN7 - 791G webcam does not work with Win10 app

    After the upgrade to Windows 10 in my VN - 791G, webcam does not work in the Windows 10 camera app.

    * The exact error message is in Swedish, but a rough translation is 'something was wrong. Please check that the unit is plugged and it is not used by another application". It was after I closed BTW Skype (see below).

    * The camera works in Skype.

    * Driver version is "Microsoft HD Webcam' 10.0.10240.16384, the last found through Windows update.

    I can't find any driver here in the Acer site.


    My suggestion would be to remove the installed drivers and install again to see if that solves it, this is clearly a driver issue because it works with another application. I also wonder if there may be an update for the application of the camera through the Windows store, maybe.

    I have a microsoft 4000 keyboard.

    He dedicated the buttons back and next to the navigation of the browser:

    the back button does not work with firefox

    other info: the next button does not work with firefox. buttons next and previous works with IE, tor and chrome. the keyboard shortcut for back in firefox (alt + left arrow) does not work.

    I've tried clearing cache and cookies and start firefox in safe mode.



    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand you have questions only by using the back button in the Firefox browser.

    But I would like more information on this topic in order to help you.

    (1) the back button worked before with Firefox?

    (2) don't you make changes before this problem?

    According to your description, there is no problem with the material since it works with Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. Previous key does not only work with Firefox. Therefore, I would advice you to check with Firefox and see if that helps, because they have more expertise on products here to help you better.

    Support for Firefox
