    Can't open "Windows Update Settings" or "Check for Updates"


    Hello guys,

    I don't know what I did, but nothing happens when I click on those two things in the search bar:

    I reinstalled Windows a few hours ago, and IIRC pressing those with the mouse lead somewhere. Now when I click on them, it does nothing. I have to type in "Settings", so I can click on the actual Windows App. Then I can navigate to those settings. IIRC those results were "clickable".

    Can somebody help?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello iamnewhere,

    If you like, here's a Windows Update shortcut to use for now until hopefully an update will sort it for you.

    Thanks for the reply!

    So, it's a thing? Those results are indeed clickable right? I installed the same Windows that I had 20 hours ago and it worked, no clue what happened this time. Thanks for that shortcut. I can reach it by entering Settings, through search though. Just wondering why clicking on those results doesn't bring up anything.

    Thanks again!

    They should indeed be clickable, but I'm not sure why they're not working for you. Sometimes, they fix themselves after updates have finished installing though.

    Did you ever figure out what was causing your issue? I'm in the same boat.
