Is it true that using a 1X probe it doesn't display glitches , transients, very small fluctuations or fine details in a waveform that is why you should always use a 10X probe. Any reasons why a 1x probe doesn't display glitches, transients, etc.

When measuring high voltages it's best to use a 100X probe even if the oscilloscopes channels max input is 500volts you can use a 100x probe to measure Killovolts?

When tuning oscillators, filter circuits or Monitoring the Microcontrollers Crystal frequency it's best to use an RF probe because of the probe loading capacitance. If you use a regular oscilloscope probe it will change the oscillators frequency or filters circuits frequency because of the probe capacitance?

I am not sure...In general 1x probes will support More BW than 10x probe(let me check actual specs)..and 1x proves are more accurate. if the signal ampliute within the probe dynamic range spec..go ahead..it will give better accuracy than the 10x probe
