    If you are using Windows11 and File Explorer with Task bar has not started, open Task Manager (see link) and restart File Explorer in the Processes tab: https://kb.uconn.edu/space/IKB/26102956244/Windows+11+-+missing+Taskbar+and+File+Explorer

    If that did not work, open the command prompt in Task Manager (link above) Run New Task." Type cmd or cmd.exe , and then click on the box "Create this task with administrative privileges" and click "OK"
    In the command prompt type this line: Dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth and press Enter. Then in the same command window type: SFC /scannow, that will repair the system files. repeat the command till you get "Found no integrity violations".
