    PC settings won't start

    When I tag PC settings, the icon shows up in the task bar, but it does not show me the PC settings screen. So, with this, I am not able to change anything on that screen. Same condition for the other users on this machine.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    Hello KETBD,

    When you hover over the PC settings icon on the taskbar, do you see a taskbar thumbnail preview of it?

    If so, then the PC settings window may be off-screen. If this is the case, then you could try the method in the tutorial below to see if you may be able to drag it back on-screen.
