Settings app Crashes OS Everything Else Works

I just installed, every time i go in settings it crashes everything else works fine. i have reinstalled multiple times and i don't want to chose another os.

My Specs
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
32.0 GB Ram
Kingston 500GB SSD

By this, do you mean the OS or the app for Settings?

If you mean the OS, then please try the terminal command:

sudo apt install --reinstall gnome-control-center

Yes, that Settings app is named gnome-control-center as a package.
Can you run the following command in terminal, then immediately log out once it is complete and log back in and test if Settings crashes?

gsettings reset org.gnome.ControlCenter last-panel

Still doesn't work, I don't know what the rules of the fourm are or if you want to I could TeamViewer

sudo apt install gnome-tweaks

Then, open Tweaks from the menu. Click on the Extensions option in the left pane. Then disable all extensions. Launch Settings and see if it crashes.

I just made another discovery, I installed TeamViewer and then when I clicked it to launch it from the menu the os crashed


Can you check the contents of /var/crash for any crash logs?

Post the terminal output of journalctl -b -1 -e or use PasteBin to post it here, please.
