Windows 10: msconfig doesn't save changes

    msconfig doesn't save changes


    Hello,

    I'm trying to edit some settings in the msconfig but when I click apply and ok it doesn't prompt me to restart the computer and when I open it back the settings are back to default.. I tried couple of things I found on the net like running System Configuration as administrator and give full control to my account it it's security right click tab, but they didn't work for me.. -.-

    I'm using win10 pro, please is there a way to fix it?

    Thanks.

    Have you tried to use Task Manager?

    I haven't tried this:

    1) Open msconfig
    2) Click on the Boot tab
    3) Is the Make all boot settings permanent checked?

    I can use task manager, but how does it help me with the msconfig issue?

    Go here: MSCONFIG.EXE not allowing me to save change! I AM ADMIN! - TechRepublic

    Do the Temporarily disable UAC.

    Any luck?

    Dang. Well, if you haven't already done so, search on a search engine (such as Bing) for your issue for more suggestions that you can find. I searched for:

    and gave you that link. Hopefully you can try other suggestions that were attempted by others. There's a bunch of results that you will find, so hopefully that variety of results will have something useful.
