I installed (plugged in) a Razer Kiyo USB webcam. Once I made sure it worked, I unplugged it and plugged it into my hub. Still works great, but it is now recognized as Razer Kiyo #2.
I can live it, but it got me wondering why and where such things are stored on the Mac. If this minor thing were to irritate someone, is there a way to “start over”? Asking for a friend.
