Windows 10: Desktop replaced by start menu Solved

    Desktop replaced by start menu


    Hi, recently my computer has been acting up. I believe I hit a shortcut on my keyboard by accident, because now my taskbar is black, and trying to access my desktop will redirect me to the start screen. Pressing the Windows key yields the same effect, bringing to the fullscreen start screen. I really need my desktop back. Any suggestions?

    Hi,
    Welcome to the forum

    Check to make sure you haven't accidentally turned on Tablet Mode

    I knew it would be something easy like that. That was the problem. Thank you very much!
