How to Identify the regular or NoIR cameras

[url] [/url]I have purchased both the regular V2 and NoIR camera V2 for my Raspberry Pi 4. Looking at the boxs they came in, I noticed the regular camera has a number (913-2664) and the NoIR has a number (913-2673) on them. When I look at what is actually written on the cameras, these 2 numbers do ...

Image Viewer App

I am a new user of the Raspberry Pi and have just noticed that there is app named "image viewer' under
the "Graphics" heading. Does anyone know where I can find out any information on the app and what
it is used for.

Any information will be appreciated.

Thanks

Remote logon to Raspberry Pi

In the past to remotely logon to my Raspberry Pi from a Windows PC, I first downloaded XRDP on the Pi and then used the "Remote Desktop Connection" app on the PC to create the connection. While looking at the Raspberry Pi Manual, I found out that you can use VNC to achieve the same goal. Since VNC s...

Re: Has the web address "rpf.io/uniform" changed ?

Hi:

I get to the same wikipedia page. The reason I questioned it was since "rpf.io" expands to https://www.raspberrypi.org/
and all the other names starting with "rpf.io" were web pages on the Raspberry Pi Org web site, it seemed strange to me
that this one didn't.

I tried the suggestion to go to the regular mode but I unfortunately seem to have eliminated the shell area. How can I get back to the original Thonny screen which was in "simply" mode and had the "programming area" and the "shell" area below it.

I am a new user of the Raspberry Pi. I know a little about python 2.7 but when I typed some of the code I had previousely written into the Thonny IDE, I began to get unexpected syntax errors.
