Logitech C920 camera not working on Windows 10 fix

So by now you are probably done with the Logitech support folks.  As usual the manufactures don't hire anyone that has a clue. 

The C920 worked fine on Windows 7 and early releases of Windows 10.  Then Microsoft came along with the Creators update and presto no more reliable webcam.  It sometimes works, for a minute or so and then disappears.  Logitech support will have you do the usual handstands and it won't solve the problem. 

The fix is simple enough provided you have a USB 2 port.  Don't plug your C920 into a USB 3 port.  It won't work reliably with USB 3 and Windows 10.  Once I moved my C920 to a USB 2 port it's back to normal.
