    Thank you Piwcio - this is why I started the thread, in the hopes someone would know or find a solution. Much appreciated

    thanks for the solution Piwcio, so it seems the upgrade and iso for 14901 are corrupt on ms servers? missing 1 file lol in the update procedure and in the home esd.

    I'm happy this got resolved ...

    Lesson learned = have a fallback, because stuff happens.

    The ISO for AU was a stellar idea for a fallback ... until a solution was uncovered.

    I can't believe they haven't repaired the file in 14905.

    I can't even change brightness as even in quick actions it's become just an on off button that does nothing. Thankfully Windows Update seems to be the only functional component in settings.

    Posting issues here doesn't help improve the platform, it needs to be through MS.
    Of course that's how we report issues, but MS never responds directly to the user, so we post here for discussion and possible fixes on our end.

    For myself, I found some old discussions from a similar issue in 2015 that were resolved by repairing system files (either with sfc/dism or by reinstallation), but SFC doesn't find any problems for me and another user posted that they reinstalled w/o fixing it. I've also checked for store updates w/o finding anything. I will note, however, that it only affects my Display settings; other settings pages are fine.

    Oh, wait, you're not interested in discussion, are you? You just like ****ting on others. Carry on then. Go ahead and brag about how I don't deserve your sympathy because I happen to like discussing issues with other users who are also on the bleeding edge.

    Edit: Just caught up on the thread, but the link to the file DL isn't active anymore. Would someone mind posting it again? I'd be much obliged.

    Edit2: Just found the file on, but thank you everyone for the helpful conversation.
