Fix for Settings app Crashes in Windows 11

If the devices have multiple user accounts before installing the latest build, then the Settings app not launches or crashes on Windows 11. To escape from this issue, you need to run the PowerShell Command Prompt. For doing so, follow the steps given below,

  • Firstly, select the Windows Start button, then in the text box type, “powershell” and open Windows PowerShell application from the search result.
  • Then inside the PowerShell Command Prompt window, type or copy+paste the following command and then press Enter.

Get-appxpackage microsoft.ui.xaml.cbs |? {($_.version -ne “2.62106.1002.0”)} | remove-appxpackage

 Add-appxpackage -Register -DisableDevelopmentMode -ForceApplicationShutdown C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.UI.Xaml.CBS_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml
