    Camera Problem

    My HP Stream 7 tablet has a little problem. When I select the camera app it opens and reads, "Something went wrong, make sure your camera is connected and not being used by another app."... Nothing is using the camera.

    What fixed my tablet camera app was to backup the camera drivers if you don't have them available. There is a dism /online /export-driver command for that. Uninstall the camera from device manager, uninstall the drivers as well (check the box to uninstall drivers if it is there). Remove the camera app from Windows 10:

    Reinstall the camera in device manager. Then reinstall the Windows 10 camera app using same link above.
