Why Is Settings App Freezing On System Apps And Features

Nov 9, 2015

My settings app keeps freezing, but only when I select System > Apps & features and System > Storage, at least as far as I am aware of.

I am running build 10586, but already had this problem in build 10571, the first one I had as an Insider for PC.

10041 - Cortana Deactivated Due To Region Settings

Mar 20, 2015

I updated the TP on my Surface Pro 3 this week - I had the mentioned bugs like mail, people and calendar not installing etc, but something odd happened. Cortana said she's not available in my region.

I am in Australia, but up until then, had no problem using Cortana in the W10 TP, with my region set to US. My region settings haven't changed at all, and I've even tried changing them, and then changing them back.

Installation :: Need To Downgrade But Can't Access Settings

Sep 22, 2015

I recently upgraded to Win 10 on my laptop but it's completely broken. I boot up and sign in ok but then I just get a black screen with a cursor. The only way I can access anything is through the task manager > run new task. I've tried everything but nothing works so I want to rollback to Win 7.

But the problem is that in order to do so I need to access settings which I'm unable to. I can click the link under user controls in control panel but nothing happens. I tried a fix (Settings doesnt launch, or launches the Store instead - Microsoft Community) but it didn't work. There doesn't seem to be any way of accessing it and hence no way of rolling back.

Cannot Access The Settings For Start Menu

Feb 10, 2016

This is pretty straightforward: I cannot access the settings for the start menu. When I do a right click on the task bar and then click on "properties", I should have a "Start menu" tab in the window. The problem is : I don't have that tab.

Also, I don't have the possibility to pin apps to the start menu, this is a bit annoying.

Cannot Access Uefi Firmware Settings

Feb 23, 2016

So Im trying to install a new graphics card, and I have to tweak some settings in the bios. Unfortunately, when I try to open it(pressing escape at startup, scrolling down, and selecting uefi settings and pressing enter) nothing happens. I looked this up, and it said to go to advanced startup and go through some steps to get to a menu that supposedly contains "uefi firmware settings". Now, I confirmed that this is the right menu, but the option is just not there. I thought about updating my BIOS, but there are no updates for it available.

Aug 26, 2015

I upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7. All was working fine. Now, I can't access the modern start screen, cortana or apps. The following things might have cause this: I changed my PCs name, I installed more ram, I created a local log in and there was an update just before this happened. I tried to use a restore point but the laptop said it failed. I have tried the powershell solution with no luck. I have tried creating a new user but it won't let me add a new user.

Apps :: Settings Sync Between Devices?

Aug 11, 2015

In win 8 if I made a change to a setting in mail or IE or added a favourite this information would sync to my other devices so everything was identical

with Mail or Edge in 10, they seem to run totally independent on my machine, no settings or favourites get synced, so I have to do the same config/changes on both devices

If syncing will come back at some point or are all devices independent now same MS account on both and all syncing options turned on
