I just got a used logitech HD c920 cam and it works great.

One issue that is bugging me though is that when the application is opened

and I begin recording video, it seems the only way to hide the application is to

minimize it.  It's still visible in the taskbar and if anyone wanted to, they could

just maximize the application again, stop the recording and even delete it.


Isn't there way to run the application and record discreetly? Perhaps like

an invisible mode or a password protected mode so that it's not visible and 

nobody can just open it up and tamper with the recording?


I'm using it as a CCTV function so it's important that nobody can: A) see that 

the application is open on the desktop/taskbar, B) open it and decide to

stop the recording OR even delete the recorded files.

I think your best option is to 'Autohide' the taskbar. Right click on a blank part of the bar, select 'Properties', select 'Autohide', 'Apply' and 'OK'. To see the taskbar after that you have to take the cursor down to the bottom of the screen or to whichever edge you have the taskbar positioned at.


You do need to remember that any computer to which someone else has access cannot be considered secure in any case.
