    Windows 10

    Can't click on "Check for Updates" "Windows Update settings" on Start


    So I have this weird thing happening in my relatively fresh install of Windows 10.
    Whenever I search for "Check for Updates" or "Windows Update settings" on the search box of the start menu, I get the results that I want but if I press enter or try to click on those results nothing happens.. As far as I know I can click all others search results but those, and maybe others related to windows update.

    I can still get updates by going to Settings>Update & Security though.

    In my other computers this works fine, and as far as I can tell all the updates are done.
    From what I've searched around other people seemed to have a similar issue where they couldn't acess the settings at all which isn't my case. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results.

    Spanker,
    .............. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results. .....................

    Please clarify what did you mean by "no results".

    When sfc /scannow is completed, it will give you one of the following 3 reports....................(paraphrasing)

    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupted files and repair is successful.
    3. Found corrupted files but unable to repair some of them.

    Which one of the above is applicable to you ?

    I should've mentioned it, I got the second result. Also I tried to set the updates for PCs on my local network like mentioned above but no changes.

    Thank you for the clarification.
    You have a weird problem. Fortunately, you can still get your updates via Settings > Update & Security.
    I have no answer for you.
    Sorry.
