    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?
