Windows 10: Windows Desktop shows nothing

    Windows Desktop shows nothing


    I just downloaded Windows 10 today. I can't see any icons, desktop, find the start menu or anything else. I read it does dual-monitors but I can't figure out how to switch when I can't see anything. I have an Alienware computer. Should I call Dell or talk to Microsoft support? Or can someone here help? The picture isn't clear but that's my desktop.

    Probably a driver issue, does it show anything on the right click menu ?

    I'd say your not at the main desktop, try right-clicking in the bottom left corner and click on Desktop at the bottom.

    Nothing shows up at all. I used my backup and recovery to take it back to windows 8.1. Now I don't know if I want to try again. None of the offered suggestions worked.

    Is there something in BIOS to change default display adapter ?
