Logitech C920 Webcam – Windows 10 Installation Tutorial

The Logitech C920 webcam was NOT officially compatible with Windows 10, when I first obtained it. However, I was able to get it to work quite easily. I am using a desktop computer with Windows 10 professional x64 bit operating system.

I hooked up this Logitech C920 webcam via Universal Serial Bus and Windows 10 immediately detected this device. You can test this device by using Microsoft Windows 10 “Camera” application. Click a Windows 10 start menu button and choose “Camera”.

This Logitech C920 webcam is limited with just Microsoft drivers. However, you can use this webcam with the version of Skype that is installed in Windows 10. You can either attempt a Skype video call or go to “Tools” then select “Options”.

In “Options” select a “Video settings” tab. You should be able to see video from your Logitech C920 webcam in a window on the right hand side. If not, click on “Select webcam” and choose this webcam from a drop down list.

Your webcam settings will be quite limited without any Logitech software. You can download Logitech webcam software for your Logitech C920 webcam. This software allows you to adjust webcam settings.

I have not had any issues with this Logitech C920 webcam on Windows 10 Professional x64 since I installed it back in April of two thousand seventeen. Logitech provides gaming software for this webcam as well. Although I have not installed and tested this software.

The Logitech webcam software supports Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and now 10. This webcam will record video in both 720p or 1080p quality. I have used it to livestream on DailyMotion, YouTube, Twitch, and Periscope.TV, without any problems.
