    Edge wont launch settings neither


    My edge browser kept crashing so I did a system restore. This said it hadn't completed so did it in safe mode and that worked. Now edge wont even launch. Also cant open windows setting which most solutions I have found require as a start point.

    You could try reinstalling Edge, see this link How to Reinstall Microsoft Edge Browser - All things technical - tips tricks

    From this thread Sept. 2015 Edge won't start Exception code: 0xc0000409 - Windows 10 Forums

    You might look at the thread first to get an idea of what those members did, it did resolve their problem.

    Good luck

    Edit: use the link for How to Reinstall Edge from this post, the link from the older thread doesn't take you directly to the right page.

    Can you get into settings by typing settings in the search box (lower left of taskbar, Cortana search thing) and choosing the top option?

    No none of the googled methods worked, but have just rebooted again and now downloading a windows cumulative update so we'll see what happens after that.

    While that is downloading, hold the WIN key and the R key. In that run window, type WINVER , and press enter. What version does it show?

    I'd recommend trying an in-place upgrade repair install first. You'd only need to perform a clean install should the repair install fail to return Edge to full, normal operations. Here's a link to @Brink's excellent TenForums tutorial on that subject: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-Place Upgrade.
