How do I switch to the front-facing camera on a Microsoft Surface?


Microsoft Surface has two cameras, a front-facing, and a rear-facing camera, but the default is a rear-facing. We are unable to swap the cameras in the Outlook Add-In, so here are the steps to help swap the rear-facing camera in Chrome for the ViewedIt extension.


  1. Open Chrome.
  2. Click the 3 dots on the right side next to the address bar.
  3. Select Settings from the list.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the settings page and select Show Advanced Settings.
  5. Scroll down and select Content Settings under Privacy.
  6. Find the Camera section and in the drop-down, you can select the Front-facing option.
  7. Click done.
  8. Close Chrome and reopen to record a ViewedIt.
