Stop camera control from starting when Skype starts

During the setup process it asked if I wanted the camera control to start when I start Skype,  I checked the box.

 

I want it to stop opening when I start Skype as I m happy with the settings,   but can't find the box to unchecked?

Launch the Logitech Webcam Software.  If you don't find it on your start menu, you can find find lauchershortcut.exe by holding the Windows key, typing r, and the in the search box enter

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common\Files\LogiShrd\LWSPlugins\LWS\Applets\HelpMain\launchershortcut.exe

 

Remove the (x86) if you have a 32 bit version of Windows.

 

Once you've started the webcam software, click on Prefernces in the upper right hand corner and on the General tab, uncheck "Auto-launch webcam controller" and save the change.

Re: Stop camera control from starting when Skype starts

I have the same problem.  Can't figure out how to stop the webcam controls from launch when making a call.  I'm sure there's a box to check somewhere, but I sure can't find it.

Please explain what do you mean by “webcam controls”.

Re: Stop camera control from starting when Skype starts

I have a logitech webcam.  Whenever I start a call and the camera comes on, the logitech webcam controls launch, as well.  This was an option that appeared during the Skype install and I checked the box to have these controls launch.  Now I can't find that box to uncheck it because I have no need for the controls to launch everytime I do a call.

Re: Stop camera control from starting when Skype starts

How does one stop the Logitech webcam 3500 control menue from opening up each time you start a Skype video call? There is no 'preference' option or menu item for Logiltech webcam 3500 to change as some postings have suggested on this forum!

Re: Stop camera control from starting when Skype starts

No Auto launch or preferences for the 3500! Any other suggestions? Thanks
