Many Desktop.ini files

I lost a folder in my PC and ran attrib -s -r -h C:\Users\[my_User_Name]\*.* /d /s on my PC (CMD Admin) to recover it. But, it made many ‘desktop.ini’ files appear and it made the thumbnails on the ‘Downloads’, ‘Documents’, etc. folders disappear. Any way to restore the changes? Thanks in advance.

Excel add-in keeps on getting disabled

I installed the TTS Turbo Macros 5 (an .xla, so an Excel Add-in not a COM add-in). It’s housed in the AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns\ folder. Every time I close Excel (365) fully and then reopen it, the macro no longer works (the hotkeys are gone, the menu is gone). However, it’s still "Active" in the Add-ins menu. […]
