Everything up to date in Windows 10 Pro, ran DISM ScanHealth and RestoreHealth but in Settings, Turn Icons On and Off are greyed-out.

Hi @Edw589 

 

Please create a new local administrator user:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/create-a-local-user-or-administrator-account-in-windows-... 

 

Log in with it and check if the problem still arises.

@Spigolo 

 

Hello and thanks for the reply! Didn't have the problem with the created user account.

That's good news.

Now you'd better transfer the content of your old user's subfolders to the corresponding new one's (Documents, Pictures, Desktop, etc.).

Then you can delete the old and link the new user to your Microsoft Account.

Thanks very much Spigolo! I shall do so, I'm sure I can find out how. Good day to you sir!

Happy to help @Edw589
