How to stop settings from randomly changing?

Hello Garuda users.
I use the dragonized edition and really like all the features tho recource hungry the looks are wohrt it but sometimes some appearance settings just change on the own for example a week ago my windows got this blue dot to pin them on wich id never use or today Latte dock changed to look super ugly (imagine a screenshot if it would apper on one) with permanent lined for open stuff and just weird. any idea why this happens and what i could do?
P.s. The screenshot shows how i had it with lil blue balls for open apps and a line for the current app

This is a well-known topic, discussed many times in the past.
Then only short answer is backup, backup, backup...
I'll give you a link below but you might search further in the forum.

Personally, I do have backups of course, but for quick and dirty theming recovery I use the "plasma customization saver" widget.

Ok that sucks i tried using my timeshift backup tho its just the important stuff so well...
but i also cant switch back to what i had, changing between Latte and Plasma doesnt change anything and win10 isnt available at all

Do you use it also for your home directory? Otherwise timeshift can't help there.

To fix emojis (ie the question mark next to Dragonized mark in top bar) use

sudo pacman -S noto-color-emoji-fontconfig

No that is why it didnt help...
but do you have a clue how i can revert it?

If it got worst After restoring a snapshot, have you already tried a garuda-update?

I did garuda-update and reste Latte via garuda settings but like i statte above i can still not change the apperance settings or atleast it doesnt change anything.
