Windows 11 Insider Preview Settings not opening with the error "We're updating settings"

Copper Contributor

My Windows 11 Insider Preview device won't open Settings especially if I go to power and battery settings with the error mentioned above. I contacted Microsoft Support and have exhausted all of the troubleshooting. Steps performed were restarting the Windows Explorer, resetting Windows components, re-register built-in programs from PowerShell, restarting Windows Update and Microsoft Store Service, trying on Hidden Admin (wherein Settings will open but when trying to open power and battery settings, it will crash), failed to create new User Profile from Settings, Control Panel and cmd and done running SFC/DISM, restarting multiple times, but the same issue. I understand that it is a beta version of Windows 11, but please advise on what should I do next so I can use still the machine for now?
