    Cannot open Display Settings in Windows 10


    The problem here is simple
    or at least I THINK it is.
    There's no customization tab to change the ico look of the folders I want to change.
    I tried using Local Group Policy Editor, (Disable the Display Control Panel) didn't do anything
    I tried to also fix the issue by using HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
    But still, nothing. Can you guys help me out here? would appreciate it.

    No there is no way to change the mandated items that Microsoft deems not user accessible anymore, even with third party utilities. Also you have to keep the Display properties active, because if they are disabled and something happens, you can never get in to fix the problem.

    I got what you mean, but I'm not trying to change anything. Just trying to get the tab active. If keeping the display properties active will solve the issue, I'll work on it

    Display Properties will only come up when you right click on Desktop or go into the Control Panel. It is not made to be running in the background processes all of the time.

    Whatever issue that you are having, you may want to uninstall the driver and the device, then set Windows to not activate Device Drivers, reboot and install the proper driver from the computer manufacturer or chipset manufacturer. NVidia chipsets have been an issue for Windows 10, since it was in original development.
