    I really don't know where to put this problem so it's here. My desktop is entirely gone. There's just a black screen. My computer can still run everything fine but hitting the windows key doesn't do anything and I can't access my tray or task bar. I think this happened because I exited some nvidia program that was in my tray, but I don't know what I closed so I don't know what to reopen. I shut off the computer and turned it on again hoping that would fix it but it hasn't. Somebody please help I really don't know how to fix this.

    Hi Kiki5786, and welcome to TSG.

    How are you able to start any programs to know they still run fine?

    Does the screen show anything when you first power up the computer?

    Are you able to boot into Windows Safe Mode?

    Please tell us the brand and the full and exact model number of the computer and monitor.

    What version of Windows are you running?
