  1. Stop program settings from transfering between User Accounts


    Hello and thanks for taking a look at my issue.

    I have an Admin account and a non Admin account on my PC and I have noticed that changes made to program settings also change settings on the other accounts. In a perfect world I would like the same software on each user account but with its own settings. Thanks!


    Windows 10 64bit Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363

    :)

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


    Hello,
    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.
    Cheers
