  1. Not able to open sound settings in control panel


    I recently built a new computer and I have windows 10 version 1903 build 18362.267. It lets me open the control panel but when I click on sound settings, a message appears on the screen that says "This app can't run on your PC" and under it, it says :To find a version for your PC, check with the software publisher" Mind you this is the sound settings built into windows in the control panel. I have the latest version of Windows. Can someone help me to get it to work? Thanks.

    :)

  2. Sound settings not opening the sound control panel.

    Before i reformatted my computer anytime I would right click on sound settings and click 'open sound settings' it would always default to my 'sound control panel. Now anytime I open sound settings it opens the main setting options for windows 10 and I
    have to click 'sound control panel' on the right side of the window. My work computer doesn't have this issue so i'm sure it's some random setting i can't find.
