    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost\UI\Visibility

    HideInsiderPage DWORD

    0 or (delete) = Add
    1 = Remove

    Hi Brink,

    Many thanks for the info and the REG files.

    Most people will probably display files sorted by name in File Explorer. As the number of saved files increases, so does the distance between the Add file and its Remove companion file, as shown in this screenshot:

    If the files were renamed (for example, perhaps following the page order in Settings) and the 'action' was appended (in capitals, so it stands out) then both files would remain together no matter how many files were in the folder. As another suggestion, info about which is the default setting could also be appended - again, so it's clear.

    I hope you don't mind me making a suggestion.

    Thank you Rick. Suggestions are always welcomed. :)

    I usually leave the renaming bit to the individual since they know better what works best for their organization system.
