After renaming ManyCam Virtual Webcam in ManyCam settings, all apps that use ManyCam’s webcam will require a restart to start displaying the new name on the list of webcam options.
In case of Google Chrome, sometimes it keeps running in the background even after you closed it by clicking on the X window control button, therefore preventing the new webcam name from appearing on the list of webcam options. To resolve this, you will need to properly restart Google Chrome.
The first option is to click on the Chrome icon in the taskbar/system tray, find the ‘Let Chrome run…’ option and click it to disable/toggle the checkmark off.
This can also be done through the browser’s main settings page:
- Click on the Chrome menu (or press Alt+E)
- Select Settings
- Click on the link titled Show advanced settings
- Under the section headed System untick the box next to Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed
Once this setting is disabled, proceed with restarting the browser.
