    Unable to go to Desktop From Start


    Not sure if this is normal or not.


    Just got a new laptop.

    Seems I'm unable to brig up the desktop when I click the Windows icon in the bottom left of start screen

    I can get to the desktop by right clicking the Windows icon and selecting Desktop.

    Any ideas?
