  4. Fix the MS-SETTINGS display error

    ms-settings: display

    I tried opening display settings by right clicking on the desktop and got an error message which says:

    ms-settings: display

    This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if on is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.

    so I found out I can open anything except the settings app

    I tried some ways I found through the internet like going through the regedit but It can't open it either.

    Tried sfc/scannow too but it was not able to fix some of the corrupted files. which did make me find out that it has corrupted files.

    I tried updating too but my laptop is not set on automatic update which you can only fix by going through the settings.

    I'd be grateful for any help or suggestions I could get.
