  1. Cheap peripherals no longer recognised / saved after recent Windows 10


    Hi!

    first time posting here, so I hope I don't break any unwritten rules. I have an older PC (specs at the bottom and in my profile) that I upgraded to Windows 10 (from 7) a few months ago. Everything was fine until a recent Windows update (a month ago?).

    I have two cheap USB peripherals that I actively use. An offbrand XBox 360 wireless receiver and a cheap WiFi dongle. I am used to Windows not knowing what to make of these two devices and having to manually point it towards the correct drivers.

    An earlier Windows 10 update already broke the drivers for these two devices, and I had to manually set them up again (a minor annoyance) but the problem with this recent update is that reassigning the correct drivers doesn't do anything anymore.

    The two peripherals show up in the Device Manager as usual, I assign them their correct drivers ("XBox 360 Wireless Receiver" and "Realtek RTL8192CU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter" respectively), windows informs me that it has successfully installed these drivers and the device is now active, refreshes the Device manager and... nothing has changed.

    I'd really like to be able to use these two devices again, but googling around hasn't given me any leads so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    (Some notes:
    • I have tried rebooting my PC between hardware installation attempts
    • I have tried different USB ports
    • There are no further Windows 10 updates pending that might correct this issue
    • Since this affects two devices (and they are actually showing up in the device manager) it is unlikely/~impossible that the hardware just broke.
    )

    Thank you for your time.

    Windows Version number: 19041.388

    Specs:
    • AMD FX-4130 Processor
    • ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 Motherboard
    • ASUS GTX660 Ti-DC2O-2GD5, GeForce GTX 660 Ti Graphics card
    • 16GB RAM (Corsair Vengeance Low Profile)

    Recent (Save Files) - Change Default Settings to OneDrive

    Hello -
    Thanks for the return. Before I undertake changing the Registry, I have a question.
    The steps in my Registry, for my version of Windows 10, were a bit different, but I think I eventually got to the right spot.
    The last step is to change the number of places you want to list in Recent Places. In my case, the default Max Display listed 50 as the number. So, if I were to change that number, how do I know the Save As page will be one of those places? Or, a similar question, will this registry change delete the tab Recent from my Save As page? This is what I would like to happen.
    When I received my computer in Nov. 2016, the Recent tab was not listed in the Save As page. Something caused it to be added over time. Which brings me to this second question. Would there be any benefit in deleting the changed registry listing and reverting back to the default listing? See attachment.
    Jerry

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
