Game crahses whenever I enter the options

As the title says, wether its the options while being in a game or when I enter the options from the main menu, the game totally freezes. I cannot move the cursor anymore, therefore cannot change any settings or go back to the game. So basically once i enter the options i have to shut down the game. This happens since a week or so. I dont want to reinstall the game, because this resets some crucial settings so if the problem still remains i wont be able to change those again. Anyone here with the same or a similar problem? Or any other ideas?

thx for any kind of help

If you own the game on Steam, right click the game in the library and go to Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity of Game Files. Wait for it to finish and see if it has helped.

i have the game from the microsoft store unfortunately
