How to increase size limit for PST and OST files

How to increase size limit for PST and OST files
Microsoft Outlook is one of the most popular email clients which is used by millions of users. It is simple to use and has very powerful options to manage your emails which are not available on the webmail of the email service providers. But most of the people don't delete the unwanted emails and the garbage emails keep getting collected in Outlook. This increases the size of the Outlook data file (PST/OST) and once the data file becomes too large in size, Outlook refuses to open it and it starts showing an error that data file is too big, delete some you the old emails to be able to see the contents of the data file.
In this situation, Outlook doesn't allow you to see any of the emails and that's why you get stuck in a situation where you can't delete any of your emails and end up losing data. But to overcome this situation, you can make a simple registry modification to be able to see your emails and even, you can store more emails in the same data file.
Follow the steps given below to do the modification in Windows registry to increase the size limit for an Outlook data file:
1. Open windows registry by running the command regedit.
2. Now, navigate to the following path in Windows registry:
Outlook 2003
Outlook 2007 
Outlook 2010 
Outlook 2013
Outlook 2016/2019/365
3. Now create a 32-bit DWORD by right-clicking in the right pane of the registry window and clicking on New > DWORD (32-bit) Value
4. Rename this DWORD to WarnLargeFileSize and double click on it.
5. Now set it's decimal value to 95000 (which is 95GB). Don’t set its value higher than 4090445042.
6. Now create another 32-bit DWORD and name it as MaxLargeFileSize and set its decimal value to 100000 (which is 100GB). Don’t set its value higher than 4294967295.

How to activate Pre-installed Microsoft Office in Dell/Lenovo/HP and other OEM devices

How to activate Pre-installed Microsoft Office in Dell/Lenovo/HP and other OEM devices
Most of the computers these days are shipped with Microsoft Office pre-installed license. Some of the manufacturers offer Microsoft 365 Home or Personal 1-year subscription and some of them offer Microsoft Office 2019 Home and Student, Home and Business and Pro versions. For most of the users, the activation process is hassle-free. They just have to launch Word in the machine and right after launching, they see the banner which shows that the machine came with pre-installed Office license and after clicking on Activate button, they are asked to log in with their Microsoft account and after signing in, the license gets redeemed with their Microsoft account and Office gets activated on the device.
But there is a big confusion among the users and the OEM technicians about the activation process of Microsoft Office in the OEM devices. These devices are shipped with pre-installed Office 365 applications which are usually MS Store apps or installed with Office Deployment Tool. Now, this is where the confusion begins, the devices which are shipped with Office 2019 licenses, they also have Office 365 applications installed in them and to redeem the license of Office 2019 also, we have to use the Word application which is already installed with the package of Office 365. But out of the confusion, users uninstall Office 365 from the computer and I have seen that not only users, even the OEM support technicians also ask the users to uninstall Office 365 from the machine which is completely wrong. If you uninstall Office 365 from the machine, you might lose your Office 2019 pre-installed license also which is bound in the machine through the Windows registry.
How to activate Pre-installed Microsoft Office in Dell/Lenovo/HP and other OEM devices
So no matter what license you've got with the device, never uninstall the pre-installed Office 365 applications. Redeem your pre-install license with the Word app which got installed with the Office 365 suite and you would be able to redeem your license for Office 2019 successfully. Once the redemption process is completed, you can install the latest updates of Office and the pre-installed Office 365 would be changed into Office 2019 automatically after updates are installed. If the installation doesn't get changed automatically, you can uninstall Office 365 and installed your redeemed product through
Now some times, it happens that most of the users miss to redeem the license after launching Word and then the banner disappears from the machine. When they relaunch Word or any Office application, the pre-installed offer banner doesn't come up. To fix this issue, you would need to run the OEM Office Activation Troubleshooter from the link and running this troubleshooter would reset the pre-installed license to its default state. After running the troubleshooter, if you would launch Word, the activation offer banner would again pop-up on the screen which you can use to redeem your pre-installed license.
I hope this article clears your doubts about the activation of the pre-installed Office in OEM devices. Keep visiting for more tips and tricks.
