    w10

    Updated from w7 to w10. Settings app wont open. Cant input account dat


    hi guys...just signed to this forum to find an answer to this problem

    so..i had w7, and today i found that w10 free update was available

    downloaded it, installed it using express settings...it didn't do a clean install cause all my files are still there

    w10 works fine, is fast, but for some reason i cant open the settings app

    i try opening trough the start menu, and it opens and immediately closes
    i try opening the app trough the new action center \ all settings ..and the same..it opens and immediately closes
    also, when i right click on the wallpaper and click on the personalize item it also opens the settings app, immediately closes and a window pops up saying: THIS FILE DOES NOT HAVE A PROGRAM ASSOCIATED WITH IT.

    since i had w7, now in w10 i have to register my MS account, but i cant because i cant get the settings app to open

    help anyone?

    Hi and Welcome to TenForums,

    See if this helps with your settings issue - Settings doesnt launch, or launches the Store instead - Microsoft Community
