Camera does not work all the time.
I bought a USB Nexigo web camera. Basic web camera. When you reinstall the drivers through settings, device manager, etc; It works with Zoom; it works by itself. No issue. But on startup, opening Camera app it says "Close other apps" plus "It looks like another app is using the camera already" error code 0xA00F4243 AND 0xC00D3704 After startup the camera will not work in Zoom, Camera or anywhere else. Sometimes if you change the USB port the camera will start working without any further effort. Moving it back to the original USB port; it still works. How do you find the app that is using the Camera?

Graphics issues not long after Windows 10 20H2 update
Icons were too large, fonts were difficult on the eyes because they looked out of kilter. After 10 hours of futile troubleshooting (incl. MS support agents) I decided to do the following: Start (right click) -> Device Manager -> Display & Adapter -> AMD Radeon 7480D (right click) -> Uninstall -> Tick box to remove completely -> Uninstall. I then shut down my PC & allowed Windows to find the right driver (which happened to be the old one!) and next morning hey presto! problem solved. I can’t tell you how relieved I was.

All Detected Networks Stuck on Connect Automatically
Several days ago I got a new router from Xfinity (Arris TG1782g). My brother noticed immediately on his laptop (running Win 7) that when he clicks the Internet Access icon in the Task Bar, every single detected network in the area has Connect Automatically checked. We live in a densely populated city and there are a LOT of detected networks. I noticed a few moments ago that my PC running Win 10 Pro also has very single Connect Automatically box checked. Most are secured networks but some are not. I can uncheck them all but they revert back to checked immediately. There is no option to 'forget' any of the networks listed and I can't find a setting to uncheck or remove them. I also cannot find a user manual anywhere online for the new router, nor can I find anything in the router's settings that covers my issue. I do not have this issue with my Apple and Android devices. It's only Windows.
