    Control Panel


    I ran the control panel once to set power settings. Once I closed it, I can't get it to reopen. Any ideas?

    How did you get to the Control Panel, clicking the Settings item on the Start menu or right-clicking the Start button and choosing Control Panel? Changing the power settings shouldn't affect getting to the Control Panel.

    I originally opened it from Start Button under Windows System. Now can't open it either way.

    Just did the same thing yesterday. Control panel is in system 32 so sfc /scannow will fix it.

    Can you see Control Panel when you click WindowsKey + X ?

    Nothing? What do you mean? The run box closes? Immediately or after some delay? What happens if you type notepad in the run box instead?

    Is there anything in event viewer? +X then V?
