    Desktop not showing now??

    Everytime I try to return to my desktop, it just shows my apps. It doesn't show my desktop at all, besides my desktop background, and I have no idea how to revert these changes, or how I even got it like this, but I can't view my desktop.

    They aren't my running apps either, just general stuff.. Calendar, mail, photos, etc.

    Your computer is running in tablet mode. To see the desktop, you have to switch to desktop mode.

    Yep. Click the little notification icon to open the notification panel and if the square for tablet mode is highlighted, then click on it to turn it off.
