    USB switching problems?

    I have two windows 10 PCs, latest update. I share USB peripherals such as external disks and webcam unrig a USB switch box.

    I am finding that some of the USB devices connected sometimes do not wake up after a switch. Or take time to do so. With Zoom and Skype for example, the webcam is not found. What are the possible problems with switching USB connection in Windows 10?

    Many thanks,

  2. Airplane mode switch not working

    Since the troubleshooting steps that were provided did not resolve the issue, we suggest switching on the Radio Management Service. To do that, please follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R.
    • Type services.msc, then hit Enter.
    • Search for Radio Management Service.
    • Right-click, then choose Start.

    Note: Never ever set this service to "Disabled".

    Get back to us if the steps won't work.

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...

    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.
