    to OP: How did you update it? I am facing issues while installing the update through Windows Update? Could you tell me the way you upgraded it to W10? Thanks.

    I have the exact same issue.
    I just updated from my windows 8.1 (surface pro) to windows 10.
    The settings opens and closes instantly (no matter where i open it).

    I also have problems opening display or personalize settings (from desktop).

    How can we solve this? Without reinstalling and losing all data

    Are we using Touch or mouse?

    Tablet or Desktop mode?

    Try switching it up. If it takes, check manually for updates. I am guessing Msft is pushing patches as fast as they can.

    You can use the old control panel to go to windows update.

    Hello, I just had the same problem, but i found something that fixed it for me. Apparently Microsoft is aware of a bug that causes this and has released a diagnostic tool to fix the issue on current windows 10 devices. especially helpful for me since as a developer I cant work until my PC is configured to run debugging software. Anyway here are the links.

    Download : download.microsoft.com/download/F/2/2/F22D5FDB-59CD-4275-8C95-1BE17BF70B21/CSSEmerg67758.diagcab
    source of claim : thewindowsclub.com/windows-10-settings-app-does-not-launch

    I hope this helps.
