The Windows 10 21H2 ‘Sun Valley’ update will be a major overhaul for the operating system, and an early build has revealed that it will introduce some nifty new settings for your webcam – and your monitor. With more and more people working from home – or remotely – many have invested in the best webcams their budget will allow – so the fact that Windows 10 21H2 seems to make it easier to set up and configure your webcam is certainly welcome.
According to Windows Latest, which tried out an early version of the update, the new webcam settings can be found under Settings > Devices > Camera. From there, you can configure any webcam connected to your PC (or built into your laptop), such as adjusting the brightness and contrast for better image quality.
In a future update to Windows 10, there will also be new privacy settings, which will let you know when your webcam is being used by apps like Google Chrome. An icon will also appear on your taskbar alerting you.
Windows 10 21H2 also adds a new setting that lets you turn off “Content adaptive brightness control.” This feature dims your device’s screen depending on which apps you’re using and the media you’re viewing, and it can sometimes be distracting or negatively impact image quality.
When Windows 10 21H2 launches in the second half of 2021, you can disable this feature by going to Settings > System > Display.
More control over your device is always good, and we expect more new settings and features to be added to the Windows 10 21H2 update leading up to the official launch.
