    Windows desktop not displaying anything; can’t access task manager


    I have an older hp computer and recently upgraded to windows 10 about a week ago. Everything has been fine until now where I can no longer access any search browsers or open any apps. The taskbar still shows up and when I click the icons it acts as if it’s open but I can see nothing. Please help.

    :)

    No restart button in task manager

    another easy way to kill tasks, download and install Winaero Tweaker(free) and theres a setting to add a Kill non responding tasks using the desktop right click menu. When you place your cursor on the desktop anywhere and right click the option is at the top of the list, Very handy and you dont have to go through all those steps and well Winaero Tweaker has alot of cool Windows tweaks. Just posting a different suggestion, Im sure your ok with what was suggested here.
