I am trying to "set up" the computer for the first time. I went through the necessary steps-network ID, email, verification info., etc. I got to the Windows screen and then nothing will happen. I can't click on any icons at the bottom of the screen, it won't even let me really sign out or shut down. I am sure the set up process was complete, so I don't know where to go from here.
Thank you for your help.
