Apps Reset and Re-register Settings App in Windows 11


  • Staff
Settings_banner.png

This tutorial will show you how to reset and re-register the Settings app for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.

Microsoft designed Settings to be beautiful, easy to use and inclusive of all your Microsoft experiences in Windows 10/11. Settings has left-handed navigation that persists between pages, and Microsoft has added breadcrumbs as you navigate deeper into Settings to help you know where you are and not lose your place. Settings pages are also all new, with new hero controls at the top that highlight key information and frequently used settings for you to adjust as you need. These new hero controls span across several category pages like System, Bluetooth & devices, Network & Internet, Personalization, Accounts, and Windows Update. Microsoft also have added expandable boxes for pages with a lot of settings.

If Settings is crashing or not opening and not disabled, you can reset and re-register it to hopefully fix it.

It is required to have the Capability Access Manager Service (camsvc) service enabled and running to use the commands below.



Contents

  • Option One: Reset and Re-register Settings App from Start Menu
  • Option Two: Reset and Re-register Settings App in PowerShell
  • Option Three: Reset and Re-register Settings App in Command Prompt
  • Option Four: Reset and Re-register Settings App using PSTools

3 Unblock the downloaded PSTools.zip file.

6 Copy and paste the command below into the Windows Terminal (Admin), and press Enter. (see screenshot below)

"%UserProfile%\Desktop\PSTools\Psexec64.exe" /s powershell.exe

7 Copy and paste the command below into the Windows Terminal (Admin), and press Enter. (see screenshot below)

add-appxpackage -RegisterByFamilyName -MainPackage windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy -forceapplicationshutdown

8 When finished, you can close Windows Terminal (Admin) if you like.

So, I did this and it broke my system...
From your post below, the command failed to run. It will only reset and re-register the Settings app, so it wouldn't mess up anything even if it was able to run for you. :(

Did you try the recommended repair install since it appears you may have more than one issue at hand?

The settings app worked before I did that powershell command. Its window always appeared, but often would close after a while. Now the window does not appear.

I did sfc /scannow
and Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth

No errors were found.

Okay, so I re-installed settings app. The problem was in that the service camsvc (Capability Access Manager Service) was disabled.

The settings app started from the first attempt (did not test more yet).

Well, your advice (or sfc) actually worked, settings app now starts from the first attempt.
It should be mentioned though that Capability Access Manager Service running is necessary for the re-installation, and without it the app stops working even if worked before.

Hello Maru, and welcome. :alien:

I'm not sure what is going on with your system, but using the exact steps in this tutorial to reset and register the Settings app would have no affect on anything else or cause data loss.

Please provide more details on what all is going on.

You wouldn't get that message using the command in this tutorial.

Can you provide a screenshot showing this to see if it may ID the issue?

Is this from restarting after a Windows Update instead?

In addition, check to make sure the Capability Access Manager Service (camsvc) service is enabled and running.

Just to confirm, does the (camsvc) service also shows as running?

Ok. It's the Settings app itself saying "we’re updating settings. it should be ready to use again shortly". This indicates the Settings app is in a crash state.

Restart the computer, and see if Settings will open afterwards.

If it Settings is still crashed, then you can try this below: (now option four in tutorial)


Workaround:

To work around this issue, please complete the following steps:
  • Download the PsExec tool from the Microsoft Learn website:
  • Open the .zip file and extract the files to your device.
  • Open an administrator Command Prompt window
  • Change file path and navigate to the folder where you unzipped the PsExec file to.
    • If you use the default downloads path the command to use would be:
    • C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Downloads\PStools
    • Make sure to replace YOURUSERNAME with your account username.
  • Paste and execute the following command:
    • Psexec64.exe /s powershell.exe
  • Paste and execute the following command:
    • add-appxpackage -RegisterByFamilyName -MainPackage windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy -forceapplicationshutdown
