They comes configured with your software. If you want to use, for example, Skype, you need to run the configuration wizard section.

Did anyone reply on how to use the cam. Mine is configured in the software, but I can't seem to make it work. Any advice from you experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hello. I saw your comment to the use of webcam on Yoga 910. The software is configured on mine but I have no idea how to use the webcam. Is Skype required? I used online detections and it shows the camera is there but I have no idea how to use it. Can you provide any information on how it works?

By any chance does your laptop camera have a little "shutter" that can slide side to side to cover and uncover the actual camera lens? If you're not certain check the manual that came with  your laptop.

No, there is no shutter. It's located at the bottom center of the screen on the Yoga 910. Thank you for replying.

Laura, see if this thread doesn't help:

There  seem to be 2 possibilities, the F8 on/off key and also the Windows 10 privacy settings here:Windows Key > Settings > Privacy and scroll down to Permissions > Camera.
