I mistakenly put too many items on the desktop and it's unable to display


Try:
- moving some of the things off of your desktop, into a folder elsewhere on your computer
then
- Hit command-J at the desktop (or view > show view options) and at the "Arrange By" menu, choose "Name". This will make sure that everything comes back on to your desktop in an orderly fashion if some of the icons are pushed out of the way.

    Icons and start upmenu bar absent


    explorer.exe is what displays the icons and the startup bar on the screen so try opening explorer.exe from the task manager. Or if it is already running close it and then reopen it.
