Internet settings opens instead of internet

Specs: Windows
Everytime I click on the internet to open it, it opens up the internet settings. So, I click okay and it just closes the settings but never opens the internet afterwards. My internet is working because I am still able to use my laptop and wifi. I ran a scan and it cleaned everything and checked my firewall settings but it still won't let me open the internet. Help?

Oh boy. Start by telling us what you mean by "the internet"? Internet Explorer? Which version? What happens when you right click on it & select 'open home page'?

Assuming the icon you're clicking is a shortcut to the application, right-click it and go to Properties. On the Shortcut tab in the Target box, it should look something like this:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe"
What does yours say?

Optionally, you can go to that folder, find the iexplorer application, right-click it, and click Send To > Desktop (create shortcut).
