Built in webcam

This question is not answered

Just started trying to use the webcam supplied with my new Dell laptop.

It seems to have made 2 files called dshow://  and screen:// 

Are these really files, and if so where are they on the computer?

  • Hi Bob.M2,

    Welcome to the Dell Community.

    In response to the above issue which you have brought to our notice, 2 files called dshow://  and screen://  are temporary files created by your Dell webcam application. With regards to the location of your saved webcam video files, the video files are saved in the default locations “MY VIDEOS” folder under “MY DOCUMENTS” in the start menu.

    If you still face any issues or have any questions please reply to the post.

    Thanks and Regards
