Re: settings app crashes when I try and enter game mode settings

Sarah k Alawami

After some quick testing, I did not make it crash with narrator, and when I disabled all the add ons in nvda I could get it to work. I think I know what might be causing the thing to crash but I need to do some more testing to be sure.

Here is the crash and here is what I did to kind of fix the problem.

Now, can anyone else reproduce this what ever this would be called?

Whether NVDA is in use, or not, I can go to Settings, Gaming, Game Mode, and get into the pane to toggle Game Mode ON/OFF without any issue.

Were I you, and I wanted to fix this, try Using SFC (System File Checker) and DISM (Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management) to Repair Windows 8 & 10 ( )
That's the universal (for me, anyway) first step to try when anything related to the Windows 10 OS itself is misbehaving.  And there's nothing more related to the Windows 10 OS itself than Settings.
