description[PENDING] Problem AND solution for non-working PC settings Empty[PENDING] Problem AND solution for non-working PC settings

more_horiz
A few months back, I had reported that I could not change user account picture on reduced Windows. That problem was rectified by a certain version number, but now I find that these later versions (1.20 and a few previous ones) have the same issue. Or maybe a more general issue, because "PC settings" does not start at all. I had removed all the metro apps, except "immersive control panel".

After googling around, I found that the following command entered in command prompt with admin rights solves the issue:

powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\ImmersiveControlPanel\AppxManifest.xml

After this command is executed, I am able to use the immersive control panel ("PC settings"), and also change user pic from inside that. I am mentioning it here to help out anybody else who may have faced the same problem.

Winter: I don't know if it affects all users or just some, but could you add this command to winreducer, if it is possible?

Very good powershell command. Thank you  Cool

It can be solved as well by protecting "Immersive Control Panel", "Windows Java Script" and "Windows Visual C Runtime" as mentioned here under "Protect Modern UI Apps".

Well, with this command the PC settings work even if "Windows Javascript" and "Win Visual C runtime" are removed. So those are two more things I can remove, without affecting functionality.

Hi,
Did you type or copy-paste that command I mentioned exactly as is? Also, did you open command prompt with admin rights? You did not remove "immersive control panel" from metro apps, correct?

I am using the latest version (V1.2), and after installation, if I enter that command, I am able to access 'PC settings' as well as change user picture. I removed everything related to metro/modern, except ICP.
