  1. Setting up New User "Settings" problem

    I am trying to set up an account for my wife on my laptop in Windows 10.

    I go to "Control Panel\User Accounts\User Accounts\Manage Accounts"

    I click on "Add a new user in PC settings"

    This opens a window "Settings"

    Under "Home", I am supposed to "Find a setting"

    That's the problem. I am clueless about what setting I'm supposed to find.

    Any ideas?

    Is there a way to use the "new user" without signing in with a Microsoft account. If so, how do I do that?

  2. Sound card amplification settings

    Yeah unfortunately ASUS and Realtek are not stepping up and fixing this it seems. Wherever I see such problems mentioned on forums some users are suggesting just uninstalling the Realtek driver and using the Windows audio driver.

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account

    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
