Question Computer Can't Remember Recent Settings/Files

I recently built a Windows 10 PC, and I've noticed that it never seems to retain short term data. Specifically, no programs that use an "open recent files" feature can detect said files, and all games revert to default settings on launch (even including unskippable tutorial prompts). I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue or something that can be resolved through tweaking Windows settings.

Does anyone here know what this could be and/or how to fix it?

Specs:
Asus b550f mobo
Nvidia GTX 1660ti card (6gb vram)
Ryzen 5 3600x cpu
8gb RAM
Corsair 750w power supply
500gbWestern Digital nvme ssd (boot)
2tb Seagate mechanical HDD

I tried everything in the linked article and nothing changed.

When I type "SFC/scannow" into powershell, I get the following message:

"SFC/scannow : The term 'SFC/scannow' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable
program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again."
