Solved!

Camera icon on screen all the time

HP Recommended
ENVY x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The camera icon to tell me that my camera is ON is present on screen constantly, in front of all other applications.  I have restarted numerous times and have reinstalled my anti-virus software.  I have been into my camera settings and switched it off but it remains on the screen all the time.Camera Icon.PNG

Welcome to HP Community

 

I have gone through your Post and would like to help

 

- Try reinstalling the Webcam driver from Device Manager

 - Select the Start  button, type Device Manager, and select it from the list of results.
- Look for Camera or Imaging Device and expand the List
- Look for Camera driver then right-click it, and select Update Driver.
- Select Search automatically for updated driver software.
- If these steps don't work, try reinstalling the driver: Open Device Manager, right-click the Camera driver and select Uninstall. Restart your PC and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver.
 

Keep me posted
