    When I open settings, the logo comes on in the center and nothing else populates to allow any changes. This occurred after the last update. I can't even see updates so I can go back to the last update. Is there a fix?

    :)

    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

    Unable to launch open Settings and Action Center in Windows 10

    Hello Emmanuel,

    We're sorry to hear the inconvenience you have experienced.

    From your description, I suspect that the issue seems to be temporary. Suggest you to shutdown your PC completely, then restart it after a while and then try to open settings to see if it responds.

    If you want to open Control Panel, type Control Panel
    into the search bar on the task bar, and select the same from the list when it appears. Alternatively you can open
    Settings, through Start Menu or press Windows Key + R,
    then type ms-settings: into the run command and hit Enter. You can also type
    Control Panel in run command to open the same.

    In case problem still persist, then try the below mentioned troubleshooting steps.

    Use the DISM tool and System File Checker for repairing any missing or corrupted system files:

    • Click Start.
    • Type cmd, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to open elevated command prompt (I.e. Command prompt with admin rights).
    • If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click
      Continue.
    • Type or copy paste the below command lines one by one into it and hit Enter:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth


    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth


    sfc /scannow

    To close the Administrator: Command prompt window, type Exit, and then press Enter. Reboot your system to see if problem still occurs.

    If you are able to open settings, I would suggest you to check if you have enabled
    Action Center as well as turn Notification On. To check follow the steps below:

    Action Center

    1. Click on the Start Menu and click on theSettings icon.

    2. Then navigate to System>Notification and Action.

    3. ClickTurn system icons on or off option, then slide the
    Action Center bar to ON.

    Notification.


    Keep us posted if you require further assistance.
