    Cortana - Webcam Problem

    Win 10 Tech Preview dual booted w/Win8.1.

    I originally started to use Cortana search with a MS Livecam VX-1000 camera only to find that camera is NOT compatible with Win 10 but was working with Win 8.1. Unplugged and removed the camera in Devices. Plugged in a Logitech HD Webcam C615 which is compatible with Win10. Win 10 installed software for the Logitech. The C615 camera works fine with Skype on both W10 and W8.1 installations. However the microphone will not work with Cortana.

    I've turned Cortana off and restarted Win10, turned Cortana back on after having completely removed any reference to the VX-1000 camera yet Cortana does not hear me via the C615. Anyone have an idea what is wrong?

    You probably need to open Control Panel, Sound and then set the Logitech C615 as the default microphone and make any other changes to it while there. Increase volume,etc. I've got the same webcam. The only issue I've noticed with mine, is that since I moved from Windows 7 to 8/8.1/10, the color doesn't look as good as it did in Windows 7.

Cortana Problem
When setting up "Hey Cortana" I followed some bogus instructions. I typed "Activate Hey Cortana" in the search box. Now it thinks my name is: Activate Hey Cortana. I can't figure out how to change that, and get my real name in there.
