    settings app does not launch for a user


    Hi


    settings app does not launch .


    I did already add a new local admin and it is working for him.


    Created a new user and copied all for the new user.


    But after some time now, settings are again not working for the user.


    I can not always add new users and copy over.


    there must be a fix for the settings problem


    Thanks T

  3. can't launch setting on windows 10.

    Hi Piotrek58,

    There could be a number of factors as to why you can't launch the Settings app in Windows 10. This could be caused by corrupted system files, software conflict, or due to a corrupted user account.

    I would like to know more about your concern. Kindly verify the changes made to the computer prior to the issue. Are you getting any error message when trying to launch the Settings app?

    Meanwhile, I suggest that you create a new user account. This is for us to check if the issue is due to a corrupted user profile. To do this, refer to the steps below:

    • Select the Start button, then select Settings > Accounts > Family & other people > Add someone else to this PC.
    • Enter a user name, password, password hint, and then select Next.

    For your reference, you can check this link.

    Check if you will encounter the same issue on the new user profile.

    Let us know how it goes and we'll assist you further if needed.
