Hey guys,

 

I've been having this problem since the release of Windows 8. Many times, apps would lose their access to the microphone, location services, and the camera. Thus I would have to go to PC Settings or manually start every app to again give them permission to access my hardware. I don't know what else to say, it happens randomly, I haven't been able to notice a pattern so far. Has anyone else ever had a similar problem?

Since writing the first post, apps seem to have again lost their permissions. Really don't know what the hell is going on, this has been happening for a long time now.

 

EDIT: Couldn't edit the first post.

Sigh... It happened again, and worse of all, all the personalisation in the Start screen gets reverted back to a previous version. Any way to force Windows to sync up settings, like one can do on Windows Phone?
