I'm having a small issue on my new MBP.

I'm trying to alter the desktop and screen saver settings, however whenever I choose this option in System Preferences I just get a constant spinning beach ball and have to force quit System Preferences.

Choosing any other option such as General or Bluetooth is fine, but choosing Desktop and Screensaver causes System Preferences to lock up totally.

I've tried re-booting but to no avail. I'm running the same OS version (up to date 10.15.1) on my other and my family's devices with no issues at all - only my 16" MBP is affected it seems.

Any ideas anyone?
