Windows 10: desktop icon disappear

    desktop icon disappear

    windows 10 starts with a black screen (with few locked applications to task bar & tray)
    no right click so I can't ask to show desktop icons). It seems that the black screen is covering the desktop because playing with the settings (personalization etc) show all icons for a second and gets back to initial black screen.
    How can I recover desktop with all its icons?
    thank you
