  1. Desktop Right Click Personalize and Display Settings don't work


    I can successfully run Personalize and Display Settings from the PC Settings submenu. However, when I Right Click desktop, Personalize and Display Settings show up in the little menu, but do not work. I get a very brief CMD screen, then nothing. I have tried: Scannow and DISM clean, and removed the two HKLM and the HKCR registry items and the that are suggested online. I've updated graphics drivers. I've fully updated Windows 10 to ver1909. Any other suggestions to get this to work from Right Click desktop on my Lenovo AIO greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks.

    Many thanks for your efforts. Just to clarify: Display Settings and Personalize have been present in the desktop submenu all along. It's that clicking on them did nothing (except a momentary command screen). They work properly from the 'Settings" submenus. I'd like for them to work from the Right-Click desktop menu,

    I did all the steps you recommended, and they functioned as you predicted; thank you. I could run the reg files without permission error. After reboot, 'Display settings' was gone. I ran the 'Add Display' file, rebooted. Display Settings was back - But no joy - same no go as before.
    I ran the steps again. Everything in registry permissions was still as we left it before. I ran the Add Display file, rebooted. Still the same as before.
    What a bummer. If you have any further thoughts, I'd be grateful. Many thanks.

    Desktop Right Click Personalize and Display Settings don't work

    Incidentally, other desktop shortcuts don't work either. Like Adjusting Date/Time by clicking on lower right time also gives momentary cmd screen and then nothing. But from PC Settings, it works. Perhaps a higher level failure for these desktop shortcuts to the settings is to blame. Any suggestions very much appreciated. Peter
