    Desktop problems


    I was clicking on the desktop to collapse a notification. The background picture darkened and my icons disappeared. The start menu tiles filled the screen. I can navigate with difficulty. The apps start up in full screen mode. the buttons to shrink the screen or shut the application (x) is not visible. There must be a way to restore the desktop but I haven't found it yet. Restarting the computer doesn't work.

    :)

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...


    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.
