muting webcam

Is there a way to mute the integrated webcam on x201i, i.e., temporarily turning it on/off via hotkeys?

 

Also, what's the funciton of F9 and F12 hotkeys?  I do not understand the blue icon?

Welcome to the forums:                                                                                                                                            http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_get_special_keys_to_work

 

Here's the functions of the keys on different models and what it takes for them to work.  FN-F6 is for video conferencing and there might be a setting in there to turn the camera off and on.  F12 hibernates.  I don't think that F11 does anything.

Fn+F9 should be the Eject button while attached to a docking station.

Re: muting webcam

Thanks Dave,

 

Your reply is right on the money.  Fn+F6 is the function I needed! 

It brings up the webcam control where I can turn it on and off instantly.
