    Desktop does not display


    When I press Windows key on keyboard (or click symbol in lower left corner) The display becomes essentially black with some tiles. I can never get a "Start Windows" window that has any information on it that can be manipulated -- for example if I wish to add a tile there is no way of doing it. Where am I going wrong?

    :)

    Try this:

    • Right click on a blank area of your desktop and select "Display Properties"
    • Select "Advanced Display Settings"
    • Select "Display Adapter Properties"
    • Click on "List all Modes"
    • Select the preferred display mode. Something with at least 60Hz.
    • Then select your setting you want
    • See if the option came back
