  2. settings window not working properly

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing.
    I will certainly help you with this.
    I suggest you to perform the below given steps and check if it helps:

    Method 1: This issue may happen due to system file corruption. I suggest you to run System file checker. System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly
    follow the below given steps:

    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin)
      to bring up elevated Command prompt.
    • In Command prompt type sfc/scannow and press enter.
    • Restart the computer.
    Method 2: If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps:

    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.
    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.

    Hope this information helps. Post back with updated issue details for further help.

    setting app not working properly

    windows store & other apps missing and/or not working (properly)


    I'll try to keep it short...
    after initial problems with both task bar and start menu I've followed the steps from this forum to get it working properly again. Thanx for that, it worked great!

    1 day later the store and edge apps were missing from the task bar, I can now only access them through different tabs in the settings menu
    all other apps which come with the new Windows 10 OS are "gone".
    they appear as blank tiles in the app list and cannot be accessed.

    I've tried to re-register both apps and store with help from this forum, so far no luck.
    it seems to keep hanging at the initializing or processing part...
    the start menu is now completely empty as well, due to the apps not being recognized.

    I've even tried to restore Windows 10, that no luck there either, "no changes were made"

    anyone got any ideas?
    can I go back to Win 7 and restart from there?
