can't see albums in the MS Photos App
I use the Microsoft Photos app from the store a great deal. I have lost the ability to see my albums in the photos app. They are in the web OneDrive and prior to last week they appeared when I wanted to see "all" in the photos app. This enables the user to add photos to albums and then have it uploaded to OneDrive. I'm of the opinion that installing a Windows 10 S0H2 update, KB5001330 may have caused this problem, when I installed it on 4/14/2021. At the same time I've lost the ability to see photo albums in the Desktop OneDrive app. I know the photos app is closely integrated with OneDrive and I suspect something has caused the two apps to not be in sync. Are others who use these apps experiencing the same problems? Does anyone have an idea of what I can do to get the photos app and the Desktop OneDrive app working properly? Ken84
The Continuing Hardware Mystery
Perhaps there is a sleuth within our community who can shed a light on a vey peculiar issue. Background:-I have a HP Touchsmart 300 (All-In-One} bought in 2009 - operating system Windows 7 Home Premium. Naturally I jumped at the opportunity to upgrade to the new Windows 10 in 2015. Yes I am aware that my HP 300 is 10 years old and that some of the issues may be put down to age, however It has been well maintained and is still in perfect physical condition so I am hesitant to say age has caused certain devices/hardware to stop functioning. In a nutshell after an Insider Preview update a device/hardware suddenly no longer works. The first to go was the microphone array and to date this no longer works and I had to install a external device. Other devices/hardware that suddenly stopped working which I thought was linked to the sound problem although the sound problem is now resolve. Sound issue resolved after further insider updates. At the moment I have to continually change the display drivers after each Insider update back to the original agreed Microsoft/AMD 2015 drivers which work perfectly with my display hardware. The new drivers they install each time they update OS results in a display out of focus, stretched and overall it looks very dull and wrong. The resolution is far lower than the capabilities of the display. Has anyone else encountered the above issues or perhaps have an explanation?

Interacting with Computers 😀
Recently, I have heard conversations and comments that 'we' are spending too much time on our devices and less on our interactions with human beings. I respect these views but I do not share them. The world of the Internet and our devices (mine is a desktop computer) offers me splendid opportunities to engage with so many people across this world of ours. Whilst it is a fact that there are downsides with some aspects of the Internet connectivity, the positive opportunities are much more. For those of us who live in rural communities the Internet offers a 'window' (excuse the usage of 'Window' on the rest of the world. 😎 This particular platform is a favourite of mine 🤩 and the sense of connectivity is fantastic. Also, this platform affords me and people like me, an opportunity to explore the world of computing and its advantages. So many thanks to you all and especially the Windows Teams 😉 you guys are really 😎
I used zoom to connect successfully but the laptop cannot find the camera. i have allowed access through antivirus but still 'cannot find camera'
I can't add any Androids Bluetooth device to play games.
Hello, I can't find any android phones Bluetooth in the add a device option. Even I can't find the setting of my PC's Bluetooth. I need to know whether my PC's Bluetooth is discover-able or not to the other devices. Anyways, my problem is I can't find any Bluetooth device in my PC. It's not showing any device name, though my androids Bluetooth is already on and connectable to other PC. How can I connect to my androids Bluetooth to this PC? How can I add a device to my PC's Bluetooth? How can I understand my PC's Bluetooth is discover-able to other devices or not? Thank You
Hi I struggle to understand why some times the messages on this windows 10 come up to shows CANNOT CONNECT because of error code 08,0000000, or something like is it a programme error or is it a rogue message trom some old program that was once contaminated.

I am back...Hopefully
Hey there Windows Community. I was gone for some time, and this was due to a lot of personal issues, stress, and overall bad stuff. I came out to my parents as Bi-Sexual which led to a lot of problems, stress and sadness. That is pretty much the reason I was not able to be around as I was pretty much without my devices for a long time ( The reason being what I have told them ) I apologize for not being able to help and be around, but it is just hard to take that your own parents think you are disgusting just because you are your true self. Right now I doing pretty fine, as with the support of my friends I was able to stay away from getting into a depression state, as things were...bad. I do understand that this is not a community for sharing your issues, but I feel like I needed to explain what is going on. Do not worry! Right now I am just trying to ignore them as I am final on my decision and that my parents won't accept me like so is just...stupid. I think we are all equal no matter the race, sexuality or religion. People are people no matter what! I wish you all an amazing day, I can not say I will be that active as I am still dealing with a lot of problems, but I will try to. Thank you for the time spent to read this. Stay positive, stay safe, stay true to your self. Be your self! - Denis
