Windows 10: Settings, Start Menu, Store and tray icons are not working (again) Solved

    And..... it happened again today, can you believe? I've never seen an OS as buggy as Windows 10, even after a clean install. This loss of settings protocol association issue is like a running gag and the "spiritual successor" to the issue in Windows 8.1 in which Modern apps, Store and Settings would not open, requiring a batch file with a script to restore their functionality. I've reported this issue several times in Windows Eight forums, and now it's Windows 10 time!

    Sorry If I'm ironic, but I get mad because it's very frequent. I'm kinda afraid one of these days this fix won't work anymore, making a Windows 10 fresh install the only remaining way to solve this issue.

    By the way, Microsoft has some insight and a possible fix for this issue:

    Settings doesnt launch, or launches the Store instead - Microsoft Community

    That specific issue was fixed months ago. It's likely there are a large number of possible causes of this problem, although they may all look the same, they probably aren't and each one will need to be analyzed and fixed individually.

    I run this fix, and despite the wizard telling me that there wasn't anything to fix, I rebooted and Settings worked once more. Looks like just rebooting fixes this issue, so good so far.
