  1. Settings menu closes as soon as I open it. Help?


    I just recently downloaded Windows Ten today 7/29/2015 and I wanted to personalize my computer. I opened the start window and clicked settings. The window flashed up but then disappeared. It isn't showing up in my taskbar or in task manager. I tried accessing it from the tile itself and the little button on the side of the window. I also asked Cortana. All of the results were the same? Any help would be greatly appreciated.*Sad*Sad*Sad*Sad*Sad

One this is on windows 8 all you have to do was make another account with the admin command line type net user username password / add and the it would fix on that account but its not working for me maybe give that a shot

  6. I have the same problem, but I think I might have uncovered some more information: If you try to go into the personalize page, by right clicking on the desktop then clicking personalize, it says that ms-settings*Tongueersonalization-background does not have a program associated with it. That name is just the title of the pop-up, by the way. Try it and see what you think.

  7. Same problem here, guys. I installed Windows 10 last night. Everything seems to be working, but I can't open Settings. I have tried start menu, win+i, and the side bar menu, all with the same results. The window appears for a split second and then closes. As SubatomicCake mentioned, the personalize page after right clicking on the desktop gives me the same error. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Settings menu closes as soon as I open it. Help?

    Same exact problem except sometimes it stays open longer.
    It closes on its own sporadically and usually within the first 20 seconds.

  9. I had the same issue, but noticed in my application logs I kept getting a Side by Side error that "C:\Windows\ImmersiveControlPanel\Application.manifest" had invalid xml syntax. I opened the file in notepad and saw it was empty. All you need to do is delete this file (I just renamed it). My settings worked immediately as soon as this file was out of the way. I hope this helps someone.
