What other issues are you having?

May I suggest sfc?


Please Run sfc /scan now using option 2 in this tutorial: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back the results.
Please indicate what message was displayed at the end:

Windows found no integrity violations

OR

Corrupt files were found, and windows was unable to fix them.

OR

Corrupt files were found, and windows successfully repaired them

SFC result:

"Windows found no integrity violations"


This is the sequence of events for this notebook:

!) Folder/file view option "group by" went missing for the "list" view of files - the option was greyed out in all the menus.
2) I tried Microsoft Fixit to rectify it but couldn't view the Fixit Accept button
3) Thinking it might be my high custom dpi setting that 'hid' the accept button I tried to reduce it but couldn't/still can't.

3) An old restore point fixed the "Group by" problem rather than the more recent one
made before the issue cropped up.

I'm happy with the high dpi setting but the fact that I can't change and save it to any lower setting indicates something amiss, because I used to be able to.

As far as I can see you have two options,
one is to create a new admin user account and test the issue,
two do a repair install,

I'm pretty sure the utility you referred to is blocking your dpi changes,

Thanks for the suggestions.


The new Admin account resizes and saves different dpi values fine.

After I noticed the stuck dpi setting on the original account I deleted specified leftover Cryptoprevent reg folders/keys and also ran a cryptoprevent removal tool. So I don't know what's with it?

I'm quite enjoying playing around in this new account..

I would copy your data from the old account and delete the old one.

Then keep scanning regularly to see if anything else turns up.
