Surface Pro camera problem


New Member
My camera appears to be functional; however when I touch the screen to take a photo I get the following message:
"something went wrong while taking this photo"
I get this message using the camera and video option. Any ideas????
Open Camera > swipe up from bottom > Camera Options > what do you see? Next, Open Camera > Charms Bar > Settings > Permissions > Web cam & mic ON
From the Modern UI select the Camera and then Uninstall. Reboot your Surface, open the Store > Charms Bar > Search > Camera > Reinstall > test it
The problem was resolved. I called Microsoft support and my destination folders were not configured correctly. Thanks for the help.
