    Windows 10 Setting Screen opens on it's own


    I have been working on a Windows 10 image and for some reason the Windows 10 Setting screen opens on its own even if you are not using the machine.

    Has anyone seen this? I am wondering is there is something in the Group polices that may be causing this. We have disabled the store in group policies as it kept doing something similar.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    :)

    Open settings of Windows 8 App

    Hi Thomas,

    In response to your query, please be informed that Windows 10 is in the list of supported operating system for Modern Reader. Also, the swipe from the right option is for Windows 8 and 8.1 therefore, that step will not open the settings. However, most
    apps have their own settings, therefore, I suggest you to look for a gear icon in the app and check if you are able to find the option you are looking for.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
