    Windows Explorer & Microsoft Account issues.


    Hey, all.

    Basically, the "Hide protected operating system files" option in Windows Explorer breaks when signing-in to a Microsoft Account [when it is unchecked, it checks itself automatically & vice-versa; reverting to a local account does not fix it; if an account is purely a local one, i.e. the local account was never turned into a Microsoft Account, the problem never happens]. Why does this happen? I've gone through 2 clean Windows installs & the problem has always happened when I signed-in to my Microsoft Account [during the OOBE, I first create a local account, then I sign-in to my Microsoft Account; I have done this on both installs]. I initially thought I broke something by messing with the Registry, so I went around changing registry settings to their defaults, uninstalling software etc. [did not fix the problem]. This is a per-user problem, not a machine-wide problem. I created a new local account - "Test" & signed-in to it; "Hide protected operating system files" worked without issues. Then I signed-in to my Microsoft Account, restarted & "Hide protected operating system files" broke.

    Edition: Windows 10 Pro

    Version: 20H2

    OS build: 19042.804

    Experience: Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    Windows Explorer & Microsoft Account issues. wie1.png


    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Windows Explorer & Microsoft Account issues. :(
