    I do not know what I did but I can no longer see my desktop when I start up the windows (little picture on left side bottom in corner looks like a window) and it is big too. when I try to hit desktop it will not let me in. I try every way possible but I can not get back to my old start up page. can I create a restore point for 2 day in the past? date would be 10/17/2018. and the screens look like they are in a old version or something, very boxy and plain text. I am so computer dumb a lot of time I do not know what the initials mean. Thank you in advance for your help.

    You want to do a System Restore to a previous date, not create one. Go to This PC > Properties > Advanced System Settings > System Protection tab > System Restore button. It will show you the last restore point that was created. You probably want to restore to that date. If not, choose another date.
