I understand you want to switch between the front and rear cameras.

 

This is going to largely depend on what application you are using.  The default camera app in Windows 8 has a button to switch between the two cameras located at the bottom of the app.  

 

What program are you using?

I'm glad you got it worked out.  Windows 8 is a new operating system, so I'm certain you are not alone in this.  

 

Thanks for updating the community.  🙂

Windows 8 is new but I also have never had a tablet before! :indifferent:

Should have seen me trying to pull the screen/tablet off! 

 

I googled this and searched the computer before I posted here, its like no one else on the planet has this computer yet (or im the ONLY one who cant use it haha).

 

Is there somewhere else I can look for info? Bound to have something else I cant do soon! lol

 

Thanks heaps for your help.

This guide is a Windows 8 guide that HP put together.  It might have an answer to a question you might have.  This site may be easier to use.

I am using a website on my PC called extasycams.com .. the application does not have an option to switch between front and rear cams and it is fixed on using the rear cam which is next to useless. If I can disable the rear cam in Control Panel won't it default to front cam? Only trouble is I can't locate either of the cams in the list of devices with Device Manager.

Hello kgolfer3. To answer your question, there are not separate entries in Device Manager for the front and rear. If there is an option to disable the rear in Control Panel, as opposed to Device Manager, then it should default to the front.
