Hey everyone, I had a (hopefully) quick question for someone. I just got a new HP Pavilion dv5t notebook that comes with a built-in HP Webcam. There's nothing wrong with it, but I still was wondering something. Is there any way to turn the webcam off? When using AIM, for example, some people like to be on their webcam, but I don't want to be on mine. But, since it is already installed, it automatically loads the camera up. The same holds true for a couple of sites where people can broadcast their webcams.
Can I turn my cam on and off at all, without using the Device Manager? I know that the Device Manager works, but I'd have to restart it to turn it on again or off again, and I'd like to be ale to go on cam on a whim if I want to. I know this is a bit picky, but feel free to offer any and all help, even if you have a different model of an HP Pavilion notebook with built in webcam. Thanks!
