This change appeared in the Company website on July 1stwhere now the company is alerting that your Microsoft account will be removed it's not used for more than two years. To prevent Microsoft from deleting it, all you have to do is Log in once every two years.
The The policy change will take effect on August 30, 2019So, if you stop accessing your Microsoft account, it will be deleted on August 30, 2021. This is a big problem, since many users have opened their first emails in Hotmail or Live and that they will now lose him. The worst thing is that Microsoft will not send any kind of warning before the account is deleted.
However, there will be some the exceptions under which Microsoft will not delete our account related to purchases, subscriptions, in-store publications, certifications, account balance or family accounts.
The first is if we used the account to buy or exchange a product or service of the company, such as a game or an application on the Microsoft Store. This does not apply to gift cards or subscriptions.
It will not be canceled if we have an active subscription but do not log in to the account. However, once the subscription period is over, both years will be counted again. If you have published any applications or games (including DLC) in the Microsoft Store, or have a Microsoft Partner Center account, this one will not be deleted due to inactivity.
The case where the account will not be deleted is also the case if we have a balance without spending it or if Microsoft owes us money, as well as if we have a Microsoft certification on our account. If we have a minor account associated with ours, ours will not be deleted either, although this occurs when the minor is of age or if the minor's account is deleted and its existence is the only reason why ours is not Not closed.
To all this, we must add the fact that Microsoft reserves the right to maintain the status of an active account. or do not close it for inactivity in accordance with the laws of each country or for any other reason.
Microsoft recommends that you visit the section of our Microsoft account on your website for the status of our activity. At the present time, this section does not contain any sections. Therefore, it is best to sign in to the Microsoft Web site or to Outlook to make sure that do not lose our email in a future.
After making some changes, Microsoft is currently working on another major change: error correction in the text can be used in Chrome. So much so that the company is already working on the integration of this feature that it currently has in Windows 10 through a validation that has been discovered.
This commit describes how the Windows Spell Checker can replace Hunspell, the engine currently used by many programs to correct errors when writing. Google Chrome, LibreOffice and OpenOffice. The user can choose one or the other as he wishes.
The implementation is not simple because Microsoft needs to adapt some of the code so that it can be rotated between one corrector and another. In Chrome Canary, we have already found a flag called "Use the Windows spellchecker". Its activation should allow us to use this text corrector natively implemented in Windows 10, but to activate it currently does not generate any apparent change. Other users claim that yes, the change is noticed and that it improves the experience when writing to the Hunspell system.
In addition, the first place the flag appeared was Chrome Canary, which currently implements faster chrome changes than Edge. This shows that Microsoft is still working on the feature and it may take weeks or even months before it is functionally implemented in the browser.
Microsoft continues to improve little by little Edge Chromium, which can already be used in Spanish. Your star web browser is updated independently of Windows and leaves EdgeHTML behind. Its final release is expected in the coming months, with a first stable release that can compete with Chrome. Gradually, they refine it to offer better performance and features, because it still has a lot to compete directly with Chrome. Perhaps this lack of additional functionality is the reason why the browser works so well and so quickly; in fact, it's way better than Chrome.9

You may be the type to dig into the Windows settings to make settings, but that's only the tip of the iceberg. The Windows registry contains a multitude of low-level settings that control various aspects of the operating system. Microsoft regularly made backups of the registry, but this has now been officially completed in Windows 10. If you want to register the registry, you will need to manually reactivate the feature.
Last October, Windows 10 stopped automatically backing up the registry, although the system reported that backups were complete. When browsing in the RegBack folder, files whose size was 0 KB were displayed. Users initially thought it was a bug, but Microsoft has now added a new support page explaining its decision to end these automatic updates from Windows 10 version 1803.
According to MicrosoftEnding registry backups is one way to reduce the overall footprint of Windows disk space. This is an interesting statement because the RegBack folder should not be a major consumer of space. Most systems should only contain a few hundred megabytes and the storage space becomes less expensive. A better explanation could be that most people never use registry backups and system errors can inflate the file with corrupted backups.
A Windows registry can cause crashes, freezes, and even boot failures. This is usually a serious task when you need a registry backup. It's odd that Microsoft stops backing up the registry without telling anyone – some recent online forum posts lament the empty RegBack folder when trying to fix errors. Instead of registry backups, Microsoft is asking users to rely on recovery points. The company recommends assigning restore points before starting any activity that might prevent your system from starting. You should usually try not to do these things in the first place, however.
For those who want to back up the registry, you preferred Microsoft by disabling only backups rather than completely deleting the feature. You can re-enable registry backups by using what else to edit the registry. Open the Windows Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and search for "HKLM System CurrentControlSet Control Session Manager Configuration Manager" in the nested list. Create a new "Dword" value called "EnablePeriodicBackup" and set it to 1. After a reboot, Windows will again start backing up your registry.
