How Can We Help?
When using a video conferencing software such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom in your cloud your camera or microphone may not function.
- By default privacy settings for both the camera and microphone are disabled in the Cloud.
- Privacy settings for the camera or microphone maybe disabled on your Windows 10 Desktop
