    Can't get into Personalization

    So I have been trying to get into the personalize and display settings by right clicking on my desktop. This is the error I get.

    This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.

    I am also not able to get into settings by click the Start and Settings link. Nothing happens.

    Have no clue what to do

    One possible reason for not being able to access Personalization is if Windows 10 is not activated.

    Go to Start, Settings, Update & security, Activation.

    If Windows 10 is activated, it should say "Windows is activated".

    If Windows 10 is not activated, it won't allow Personalization settings.
