Near freeze after activating Zoom in Accessibility menu

After activating Zoom in Accessibility menu, the mouse is nearly frozen, the desktop becomes sluggish.

Restarting the computer does not help.

mv ~/.config ~/.config-disabled (in Console) and restarting does not help.

I thought user settings were in ~/.config, apparently not, so where are they?

Restoring completely the Manjaro root partition solves the problem, which excludes a hardware breakdown.

Then, the problem can be reproduced.

Is there any way to start Gnome safely (with all custom settings disabled) from the console?

How to turn off zoom from the console or Alt F2 with gsettings or dconf?

Please excuse my superficial knowledge. I am only a hobbyist, thanks.

This may be helpful:

I used the above method to find a repair.

Go to Console with Control Alt F3.

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.a11y.applications screen-magnifier-enabled false
sudo systemctl restart gdm

Moderator edit: Fixed it for you.

That setting is default, by the way…
