    No Settings.

    Hello. I really need help today. I am trying to revive a dormant machine as my main one gave up the ghost. The new to me machine runs Insider 16273 but has not been used for a while. I am trying to get it going again but get no Settings, any which way that I try. I need to verify my MS account too, I am sure, but it will not, as normal, present me with the link.
    On my Taskbar, Edge, Store, are missing. Is this a clue ?
    Everything else is fine, I am on IE as Edge will not come up. I will be forever thankful if one can cure this for me. Jean.

    It sounds like you may need to carry out a Reset.

    Try:
    1. Windows key+R together to bring up the Run dialog.
    2. Enter ms-settings:recovery.

    Hope this helps...

    Thanks, Rick. No go ! Remember, I can not see/use any Settings at all. Strange.

    I will try to Reset it to some previous version using a DVD.iso. Jean.

    Have you seen this Windows 10 Settings app does not open article?

    Or this Settings App Not Working in Windows 10? Here’s How to Fix It article (which looks a little more informative)?

    If you just want to try a Reset, avoiding Settings:

    1. In the Cortana search box, type systemreset.
    2. When systemreset appears as a search result (with Run command underneath), right-click on the result and choose Run as administrator.

    Rick, my UK friend, hello.
    And thanks for your guidance, I did not have to use it but I have it noted for further reference. My solution was in cloning from a working W-10 machine. Please do not tell on me for this cloning, it might not be ULA cricket.

    Tata ! Jean.
