Hey Guys, I am not able to open my windows settings app, not even the start bar. I have tried all the ways to open windows settings app. It all happened after some windows updates were installed, I even can't revert it back to previous windows as for also that i need to access the settings. Also my command prompt in the administration mode is not working. So i think it might be the 1809 version which might have deleted some admin files but again i can't do anything without accessing the settings. Please someone help.

Hello and welcome to the forum.
So i think it might be the 1809 version
There have been a number of glitches with the 1809 October Upgrade, that's likely the reason it is still as of today not being released publicly and except for a very brief period of time was not generally available at all through Microsoft Resources. When they discovered the problems it was causing they pulled it down promptly.

You might want to try the Windows Recovery Environment to see if you have options there that might allow you to perform a System Restore, of a means to "Go Back" to a previous version of Windows.

Other than that, my only other suggestion which might possibly work is performing an in-place upgrade repair using the latest ISO available from here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 using the Media Creation Tool to obtain the ISO and saving it to a local folder on your computer. Then just double click the ISO to mount it as a virtual optical drive and run setup.exe from there to perform the upgrade / repair.

IF you are truly running the 1809 version, it may balk at upgrading using the 1803 ISO and pitch an error about attempting to upgrade a newer version from older version media.
IDK as I've never tried it but it might be worth an attempt.
