    Nothing opens in my desktop!


    Hello!


    I've been experiencing an issue with my desktop.


    I am unable to open apps, including the Settings, Command Prompt, PowerShell Admin, File Explorer, and Run. I've tried opening every single app and failed.


    I have tried going into Safe Mode but only get a black screen with the cursor. Also, I have tried logging out of the user profile, going into the lock screen, but I get a similar black screen. Only after I press enter I can go back to the main screen.



    Where to start solving the issue? Any advice?

    :)

    windows 10 deleted my desktop files

    Step 1 - I upgraded to Win 10 and lost all my files on Desktop.

    Step 2 - Found the files in Network - USers- Desktop

    copied all files again to desktop.

    Step 3- Restarted my machine again and lost desktop files again.

    Step 4 - As suggested did the following as listed below but dont find my files.

    • Press “Windows + E”, open This PC/Computer
    • Open Local Disc C, open Windows.old
    • Click on Users, select your User name
    • Go to desktop folder
    Cant find my files. Why is Win 10 deleted files again and again from Desktop ?.

    Desktop items open Libreoffice; windows bugged and flickering

    My mother's PC had the most bizarre bug I've ever seen this morning.

    PC specs: Windows 10 Home 64bit
    Version: 1903 when problem occurred (1909 now)

    What happened:
    • all desktop items, including folders, opened in Libreoffice Writer; once open it displayed a blank document then began flickering as if it had bugged while scrolling
    • opened Task Manager from the task bar, selecting the second tab opened the final tab, which began flickering like Libreoffice
    • problems stopped after a restart, then occurred again after another restart; then stopped after the PC ran for a short time
    • no error popups or BSODs
    • she said Candycrush reported an error earlier but it didn't occur when I looked at it; she said it mentioned "something about the desktop"

    Steps I've taken:
    • did a quick virus scan then reboot scan with Windows Defender; no problems found
    • sfc /scannow; no problems found
    • installed update KB4537572 and upgraded system to 1909; updates appear to have been successful, no other updates available

    At the moment the problem has disappeared, but since it reoccurred previously I'm not sure it hasn't been fixed.

    I'm out of ideas. What else can I check and what other tests can I run? Based on the given information could anyone suggest what the problem might be?

    Your suggestion does not work. It did work on Windows 7.
