Microsoft adds a few new features to protect your account

Microsoft has added in a few new security features, including a “Forgot your account” feature to help people recover their account information without needed to call Microsoft support.

Xbox One X gets the option to disable enhanced graphics

The Xbox One X is getting the option to disable enhanced graphics on Xbox 360 games, along with a set of four new enhanced titles. The reason for Microsoft giving the option to players is just so that they have “more control over their gaming experience.” Whatever your reason may be, you now have the option to downgrade the visuals of the game to bring yourself back in time, and experience what your game looked like back in the day.
