    Account problem causing Settings Panel Problem


    The Settings panel on my Windows 10 Pro production system opens full screen. I had another thread about the problem and with troubleshooting assistance the problem has been isolated to my Win 10 account. I can create another account and the Settings panel opens "normal" size. I dual boot the system with the Insider version and that version also opens "normal" size.

    The problem started when I installed a video card (RX580) and moved from Intel CPU video to the new video card and 2560X1440 screen resolution (Windows recomended). If I select 1920X1080 (what I was using with the Intel Video) the Settings screen is the "norml" size.

    I can't just create a new account and go from there, just as I've avoided a clean Win 10 install, because I will lose several of my recording studio add ons (that are no longer available due to the demise of then owned Gibson Brands "Sonar").

    I suspect a registry entry is the cause of the Setting screen default size but I have no information on where or what the values should be. Just resizing the screen only works until its booted again (I wish it was that simple).

    The Settings panel opening full screen is only a minor nuisance but I would like to get it resolved.

    :)

    Yeah unfortunately ASUS and Realtek are not stepping up and fixing this it seems. Wherever I see such problems mentioned on forums some users are suggesting just uninstalling the Realtek driver and using the Windows audio driver.

  3. control panel problems

    Hi Fernando,

    With regard to your query, we suggest that you try to create a new temporary administrator account and see if the issue persist.

    Creating a new administrator account will help us to isolate the issue and to determine if the account itself is causing the issue accessing the control panel.

    Follow the steps below to create a new user account in Windows 10:

    • Select the Start Windows logo Start button button, then select
      Settings Gear-shaped Settings icon > Accounts
      > Family & other people > Add someone else to this PC.
    • Enter a user name, password, password hint, and then select Next.

    Let us know the result.

    Account problem causing Settings Panel Problem

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
