Windows 11 is in early beta and is not intended to be used on production systems as it is not finished (use it on a VM or secondary system). There will be problems and stability issues. Try doing a reset of the device. Since settings does not open reset the device from the boot menu. If you are able to get to the logon screen, hold the Shift key and press the reboot button. Continue holding down Shift until you get to the boot menu.
