I restarted my Shadow and main laptop, relaunched and now I cant open display settings without this message showing, and the settings app wont open at all. Everything else works perfectly fine. How would I be able to fix this?

To fix this, you can try the following;
First - check for windows updates, install them, and restart

if that doesn’t work….

Click Start, and type in the search box “wsreset.exe”

Click it, and press enter - then wait for the command prompt box to disappear (a new Windows Store window will open automatically) -- close it, and see if you can go into your display settings now.

hopefully that fixes it -

if not - check for a restore point back when it was working -


there is another option, create a new user profile… but any game / app not installed for all users, will not be available to the new user.

last resort “windows reset” on shadow

Once it’s fixed, please let me know what you did, just curious :)  Good luck!
