where are photos from webcam stored?

Suddenly when I take a photo with my webcam, there is no option to download it or to email it. 

Where are these photos? 

I can  take a photo but I don't know where it is now, tried this many times.

Looks like the webcam features are different now. Thank you.


Hi Jo,

Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

All pictures, videos, and panoramas you take with the Camera app are saved to your camera roll. There are different ways you can look at your camera roll.

  • Camera app: Swipe to the right or click the arrow on the left side of the screen. You can also swipe up from the bottom edge or right-click to see the app commands, and then tap or click Camera roll.

  • Photos app: Go to the Pictures library, and then to the Camera roll folder.

  • File Explorer: Go to the Pictures folder, and then to the Camera roll folder.

  • OneDrive app : Go to the Camera roll folder. Your camera roll only appears on OneDrive if you automatically upload photos or videos to there. For more info, see Automatically save my photos and videos online.

  • From the lock screen: Tap or click Camera roll to see the photos and videos you just took. To see all of the photos and videos in your camera roll, tap or click the Unlock button, sign in to your PC, and then use any of the apps listed here.

Hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to reply in case you face any other issues with Windows in future.
