    Lost all settings, profiles and bookmarks after 1903V Upgrade


    Hello, my first post ever on a MS forum.

    Yesterday, my PC got upgraded to 1903 and ALL my settings, profiles and bookmarks were gone afterwards. The issue list is even longer, with programs refusing to start, failing, etc. But OK, I've now spent hours putting things back into order again. Then there was a restart required this afternoon, and afterwards, all settings, profiles and bookmarks were deleted again. This is becoming a true nightmare, I'm in shock that this could actually happen, and I just wonder if others have gone through this and if things get better or worse?

    :)

    Lost default photo viewer after profile rebuild


    Thanks Brink. I've tried those steps before i started searching Google. After the profile rebuild i don't have the Photo app listed to choose to make it default in either the system settings for default apps or the Open With option.

    I can't even find it doing a search. Seems to have been removed somehow with the profile rebuild, which doesn't make sense.

    Might be helpful to list what i've done Lost all settings, profiles and bookmarks after 1903V Upgrade :) I've done the open with check, the choose default program in the system menu, tried that in device manager default programs also. I've checked the programs and features Turn windows features on/off and it's not listed there (never thought it was but that was a suggestion), searched the MS Store, it's not listed there either.

    I don't like playing in the registry unless i have defined steps and haven't found anything for this yet, just the Win7 version like in my OP.

    Problem with importing bookmarks

    It could be related to an issue with the Chrome "profile". Take a look at this article that describes the problem and suggests a fix

    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
