    Well a bit of an update. Since I had no desktop found problem as well, this created quite the mess. Going to the start menu I found that a majority of the programs would not run. Since I have no way of going back to an old restore point or even an older backup (Start Menu Programs wont work), I have decided to try and reinstall Windows 10 Pro from an old Media. I found that it would not take as a newer version is avail. Downloading it under Windows Setup as we speak. Probably a stretch, but if this works but still can't get any programs to run, it will be time for a fresh install.

    I still fail to understand why the desktop disappeared or why a mouse or Keyboard is not functional. I have no wired mouse or keyboard available. Also since no programs seem to work any old backups wont work either.

    Is there something I am missing, but sure never had this problem before and this is the only upgrade that failed out of 3 machines. I guess it was just my luck.

    Well the latest update of 1809 has fully restored everything back to normal. I have my desktop back and all the desktop shortcuts are working as well as Start Menu Programs.

    Why didn't I think of doing this a couple weeks ago, would have save me from pulling out my hair and scratching my head.

    Consider this case closed.

    Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions and idea's.

    Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.
