Windows 10: Can't eject Camera as I used to before late March Windows update

  1.    20 May 2018 #1

    March Update of Windows causes lots of problems

    First off, before the Windows 10 update in late March, the Safeky Remove icon in the Taskbar was only visible if I had plugged in certain peripherals. Since the update, the icon is permanently present. When I click on the Safely remove icon, nothing happens. I do no longer see any connected peripherals (Wacom tablet, headphones). How can I troubleshoot this?

    The biggest problem:

    I have an Olympus E-M1 digital. Before the update, after connecting the camera via USB to the pc, the safely remove icon would appear in the Taskbar. The camera was listed as mounted when I clicked on the the Safely Remove icon. Since the last Windows update, the camera no longer shows under safely remove. Before the update, after ejecting the camera in File Explorer, I would get a pop-up conform that it was safe to now remove the device. I no longer get this prompt after the update.

    In File Explorer, the camera shows up as USB Drive (E). It seems I can eject the drive, but I do not get a confirmation that it is safe to remove the device. However, USB Drive (E) displayes as "Removable Disk." Is that good enough?

    A third concern is that sometimes my camera will not show up as USB Drive (E), but that there will now appear a camera icon and the drive is listed as E-M1.

    I am not sure any longer how to safely eject the camera, and why there are inconsistencies regarding how the camera is shown in File Explorer (USB Drive (E) vs E-M1).Other rhtings that hav ebeen messed up by the March update:

    Miscellaneous list of things the March Windows update messed up:

    My lock screen and backgrounds were reset back to default and the computer did in Settings not remember the previously chosen pictures. Fixed

    The previously disabled welcome screen is back. Fixed

    Edge left a shortcut on the Desktop and replaced Chrome as my default browser. Fixed

    Previously I could switch between external speakers and headset in the Sound Access Menu in the Taskbar. I still can switch between the two outputs, but sound only comes from the speakers if the headset is plugged into the USB hub. If the headphones are plugged into a USB port on the pc, I can switch properly. Apparently, the Windows update disabled my USB hub.

    Avast doesn't work anymore. TWhen I try to launch Avast, a prompt tells me "This is embarrassing. The UI failed to load." Doesn't say what to do. Not fixed. I consider uninstalling and newly installing Avast.

    In my admin account, I once again have no access to my other user folders.

    What is going on with this Windows update?

    Thank you for any comments.
