this is a simple question but I cant find answer On Toshiba laptop l875d-s7332, windows 8, 64 bit: When I turn on webcam it's facing me and i want it to face forward to take picture of something else, not myself! I can't even see a lens, guess it's hidden. After all searches (5 hrs) and videos re: camera, not one mention of how to "turn the camera around to be front facing" Please help me maintain some of my sanity by answering this simple question.
Ninety-five percent of my time is using my i-pad but wanted to learn to use laptop camera.
Acer used to make a few models of laptop with the camera mounted on a rotating hinge. That was a number of years ago and the only example I can recall of a laptop with anything but a webcam fixed in place to face the user.
The purpose of the laptop webcam is different from a phone or tablet. Laptops are portable computers but not so portable that they're expected to be used for the kind of picture-taking commonly done on phones. The webcam is largely there for things like chatting through Skype or whatnot. Thus all mainstream laptops feature only one camera, facing the user.
