    No taskbar, no icons appearing

    I can't get into the settings to factory reset my computer. I use windows buttom + i. It never loads. I already tried going into powershell and copy and pasting what's normally pasted into there. It never finishes loading up the command so I just close it after. Please Help me.

    I also just made this account so I can probably get some help.

    Sorry but what i meant was, when I open the settings with windows + i it opens the settings window and it just shows the circut with the blue background. It stays like that and never loads settings farther from that.
