Help switching between Head set microphone and built in mic

by xrunnr / August 20, 2009 11:54 PM PDT

Hi, here is my issue. We have a Logitech Quick Cam pro 5000 with a built in microphone. My father, is a little hard of hearing and prefers to use a good quality USB headset with microphone. The problem is, he wants to be able to switch back and forth. BUT, if he initiates a call using his speakers and built in mic (quick cam) and he plugs in his headset after the fact, the only way to switch to the boom mic is to stop the video conference, go to Audio tuing wizard, set a new Mic, then start the video conference again. Is their a way to have a simple toggle between the USB microphone and the built in microphone on the logitech camera?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
