Windows forgetting folder type view settings (BagMRU size)
Why has Microsoft, after all these years, still not fixed the problem of Windows "forgetting" individual folder views? YES, I'VE CHECKED THE BOX. Requiring users to edit the registry when it would take ZERO effort for Microsoft to do it is just wrong. If you don't know what I'm talking about, Windows limits individual folder views to 5000. Once that has been reached, Windows will randomly switch to details view (or whatever your default is). You must add "BagMRU Size" to the registry and set it to a higher amount.

Helpful ways to protect your Microsoft account
I have seen more times than not, users reaching out about their accounts being hacked. Just a few tips for everyone who stumbles upon this post. > It is advised you change your password atleast once every three months. > Activate two-step authentication to ensure you receive a 6-digit code to a trusted e-mail or cellular device each time you attempt to login. > Never share your account details with anyone and remember, Microsoft employees will never ask for your account password. > Do not click on any suspicious URL's and always ensure you are on microsoft.com or windows.com before typing in any login credentials. This will prevent information phishing. > Never use the same password for more than two accounts. This prevents hackers from accessing other accounts on other websites. If at anytime you believe someone may have access or has had access to your account, change your password immediately. It is also advised that you change the e-mail address associated with your account. Should there ever be a need for further assistance, you are always welcomed to contact Microsoft customer care.
