@Fitzy61 -- you could have a disk-drive that is failing -- very, very, very slow to respond when you "click" anything.

Restart the computer, and launch the HP Hardware Diagnostics against the disk-drive. If the "short" test fails, do NOT run the "long" (many minutes) test, because that test may kill the "residual" life remaining in the disk-drive.

Thanks for the reply unfortunately I have tried the diagnostic bit but it shows everything is ok I left it switched on for hours thinking it would rectify the problem but I still have nothing but the very nice wallpaper on my main screen no saved files photos etc? If it can't be fixed I will have to save up for a new computer 😔

@Fitzy61 -- elsewhere, I have seen a report of missing desktop icons following a Windows Update.

It was suggested to right-mouse-button click on the wallpaper, and choose to "unhide" those icons.

 

On your keyboard, if you press the "Windows" key (bottom-left of your keyboard), does the Windows menu quickly pop-up ?
