With these feature, you can manage your space efficiently by erasing the type of file that you don't need.

(Edit, not bad, not even 30hrs from first update with the bug and another updates that fix it were available) build 2019.10.17.6232201; Control panel -> File Explorer Options-> tab 'View' or any file explorer window -> tab 'View' -> Options-> Change Folder and search options both open almost same settings, and the 'Advanced settings' apply in both cases to all folders; now when i select 'Show hidden files, folders, or drives' and unselect 'Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)' which asks for confirmation, then i click on 'Apply' and 'OK' nothing happens, i go back to File Explorer Options-> tab 'View' , and what i selected & unselected before has been undone, i repeat everything once more and now the hidden files appear and the advanced settings has been successfully altered, however if i want to hide all those files again, i need to repeat it twice in order for it to work; can anyone confirm if it happens on his/her PC as well?

Latest update "broke" my Surface Pro 3
After installing the latest update my Surface Pro 3 went haywire. Windows for any/all apps were resizing and or closing themselves spontaneously. The caret/cursor was flying all over the place. Apps that had settings e.g. a metronome app, would reset all on its own. Thankfully, I was able to revert back to the previous build. So, WTF?
I continuously get print error 0x00000bbb when trying to print any file from my Dell laptop. This happens on both an Epson and HP printer. The printers always test positive so the error is caused by Window 10 and I suspect one or more Windows Update are to blame.
Microphone in Teams
Has anyone else suddenly had their microphone stop working in teams on their laptop? It works when in anything else, just no-one can hear me in Team calls. All the settings are set to allow access, and nothing's changed from when i used it the day before. I've looked at the support pages but have already tried any suggestions there. thanks, Susan
in place upgrade vs. reinstall
Sometimes, our devices may run into issues that doing the sfc /scannow command or creating a new user account, etc. will not fix the issues. Here are two popular methods to fix problems. 1) in place upgrade: What is an in place upgrade? It is basically reinstalling Windows while we get to keep our files, folders, settings, etc. It basically gives us a fresh couple of the Windows system files. Meaning, we might do the sfc /scannow command and it found corrupt system files that cannot be repaired. The in place upgrade will give us fresh system files. pros: We do not lose any files, folders, settings, etc. when choosing the in place upgrade. cons: When choosing this method, it will take a while to complete. It requires several restart of the device. If the device has a good CPU, etc., then it will be a little quicker but will still take time to complete. p.s. After the in place upgrade is finished, we might have to update few drivers again. Usually, the in place upgrade will revert the newer drivers to the previous ones. Remember, it will create Windows.old. That will take a lot of space. The best way is to go to storage under settings and Storage Sense to delete Windows.old. You can free up over 10GB of temporary files and can regain some C drive disk space. 2) reinstalling Windows 10: What this does is basically reinstalling Windows 10 again. Giving us a fresh start. pros: This method is usually quicker than the in place upgrade. cons: The cons of choosing this method is it wipes out everything. p.s. When choosing this method, I generally only wipe out the C drive but do not wipe out the D drive. If you want to choose this command, I suggest you to copy everything in the desktop or if you have put files, folders, etc. in the C drive to a portable drive. Also, download the bookmark from Edge, Chrome, etc. and save it to a portable drive. It is because after reinstallation of Windows 10, they will be gone.
Storage Space problem (One Drive)
So, I was wondering why I only had 162 GB free on my 500 GB SSD when I've only had my laptop for 2 months. I looked in Settings, and it says that over 95 GB of space are being used by OneDrive, and I was wondering if there is a way I could clear those files without hurting the files on my laptop.
