Check Out These Helpful Hacks for the Honor MagicBook 14
The honor laptop is a no-frills notebook that packs a good punch. It looks great, has all the ports and connectivity you’d need in a travel laptop, decent battery life, and an excellent keyboard. And it performs well for the price.
But there are some things to keep in mind when using the MagicBook 14. Here are a few of these tips to get you started.
1) Disable the webcam when not in use
While the Honor MagicBook 14 comes with a physical webcam cover (which is a nice touch), it’s always better to disable it than rely on a barrier that can be easily removed.
To do so, simply tap on the Windows search bar and type Device Manager then click on it to open the app. From there, expand Imaging devices, find your webcam and right-click on it then select Disable device. To enable it again, follow the same steps but instead of selecting Disable device choose Enable device. You can also uninstall your webcam driver if you don’t plan on using it at all by right-clicking on it then selecting Uninstall device after which you’ll have to reboot your laptop to allow Windows to reinstall the driver automatically.

- Now press and hold these buttons together: Volume Up + Power button for a few seconds
- Release only the Power key when you see the Windows logo on your screen

How to Make Your MagicBook Last Longer in the Best Way Possible
When your new laptop arrives, you probably can’t wait to fire it up and get started. But that’s not all you should be doing with it.
Avoid slamming your laptop shut
This tip is common sense but its true for every laptop user out there. Slamming your laptop shut may seem like the cool thing to do at first but that’s just going to hurt the hardware in the long run. The screen will eventually start to wobble and eventually you might end up with a broken display.
Get a protective case or sleeve
The Honor MagicBook 14 has an all-aluminum body. While it looks really nice, it can get scratched quite easily. So, make sure you get a protective sleeve or case for your laptop so that you don’t end up scratching the body accidentally.
Use your laptop on a flat surface
The Honor MagicBook 14 has a fan inside which helps keep the CPU and GPU cool while they are under heavy load. However, when you place your laptop on a soft surface like your lap or a bed, the fan intake gets blocked which results in overheating and throttling of the CPU/GPU performance. So, always use your laptop on a flat surface.
