    Clipboard Settings are not working


    Yes, hello.

    I wanted to test this "clipboard history" thing... Now I want to turn it off. When I access the Clipboard Settings, it just crashes and closes itself.

    Yeah, you heard it right. I go to Settings, click System, and once I click Clipboard it just closes. I've been repeating the action and I still can't access them. There are no extra details. The Windows build I'm using is 18362.900

    It seems like any other Settings section works.

    Does anybody know why does this happen and how solve it?

    Kind regards, James

    Edit 1: I just discovered a few sections of System don't work at all and crashes the app. Like Device Specifications.

    Hi, see:
    Reinstall and Re-register Apps in Windows 10

    search for Settings

    and use the command as instructed in the appropriate section.

    This may help unless there is something more fundamentally wrong.

    You might want to try running
    chkdsdk c: /scan
    from an admin command or Powershell prompt.

    As to why- I'm afraid my crystal ball is currently down for scheduled maintenance.

    Somehow it didn't work...

    Also, I noticed the Powershell lagged a lot...

    Thanks for the help, anyway.

    Sorry, that's far too vague. What didn't work, how?

    Screenshot proving you ran the command appropriately and the response?

    Or did the command complete and not fix anything?

    Or is that comment about chkdsk?

    Precise response needed please, else you'll be advised to perform a clean install. Thanks.

    Wait a minute... does lack of space in my PC could deny the re-installation or no? I think the answer should be obvious but I just wanna make sure.

    Also, about the re-installation... I couldn't do the first option as "AppXManifest" didn't exist. I was able to do the rest of the options provided but... nothing fixed. Some couldn't even be fixed as they were "currently in use."

    I don't know if this is dumb but... maybe a Settings reset will help? Like, deleting its data

    I'll give you some screenshots about the command later... (hopefully soon)

    - we're talking about reregistering the Settings app. Not Windows.

    Will await screenshots so we're on the same page. Hopefully!

    Alright, so I ran the command and got this...

    Screenshot - 7613dd182f2031017f02e8e3288ec012 - Gyazo

    Is that enough?

    I also tried PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *immersivecontrolpanel*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}" on the Command Prompt but nothing happens (and yes, I ran it as Administrator.)

    That's what I tried to say. Sorry if I'm confusing you.

    Hi, unfortunately that screenshot is hard to read and doesn't show the command.

    Screenshots are most helpfully posted thus, using the forum features:
    Clipboard Settings are not working-screenshot-copy1.png

    Given you can't run the command, I suggest you do this:
    a. simple basic check: run
    chkdsk c: /scan
    from an admin command or Powershell prompt.

    b. perform an in-place upgrade repair install, which, like any other upgrade keeps all progs and data.

    Now you have build 1903, so you need a 1903 is file, available via the
    Heidoc iso downloader (Google)
    from MS.

    Make sure you have at least 30Gb free on C:

    Download it, rt click it, Mount it, run setup.exe from the new drive created.

    Note: tenforums members time and again recommend the routine and regular use of disk imaging (e.g. Macrium Reflect - free/paid + large enough external storage for image files). Before any major change, secure your current state by creating a disk image, just in case so you have a second chance.

    I used this: Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


    This is what I got from running chkdsk c: /scan
    Clipboard Settings are not working-clipboard1.png

    So, 30Gb, disk image, in-place upgrade... alright then. That would be all?

    The only case in which it definitely won't help is if the same action succeeded were you to create a new user (for test purposes) and log in as that user. If that happened it would be a user profile problem.
