Re: Camera control

firstly, I think you may need to download/install/update the cam's software/driver.  Usually such options can be controlled/adjusted using the webcam's driver/software.  You can check the manufacturer's site to check the latest version of the driver/software for your cam (and possibly a user manual might also be available there).

Re: Camera control

Windows only checks the bare-bones device drivers

check the manufacturer's site for the complete and latest software support package
