Dont use the file explorer in Sitecore for webconfig

If you want to force the Sitecore web application to restart by changing the web.config, do not use the file explorer in Sitecore backend. Sitecore has a file explorer in the backend to edit files web based.

When you change a simple text in the web.config, Sitecore also sets the UTF line to UTF-16 which makes the web application crash. So only make changes in windows applications like notepad.
