Hi :)

It really depends on which version of linux but this forum should be able to help
http://www.linuxquestions.org
as it deals with a huge range of different versions of linux but is dedicated to linux support.

It might be worth popping along to
https://distrowatch.com/
to see if you recognise which of those versions of linux you were using. If you see your version listed down on the right-hand side then click on it and navigate to the "User Forums" for your version of linux. They should be able to give much better help in there.

I would try a right-click on your desktop and see if that brings up a good long menu. If so then find your "package manager" and search for "xfce" or "gnome-desktop" installing either of those should bring back something vaguely familiar which should help your get back to whatever you had before.

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

Hye there,

to get our icons and taskbar back just press CTRL + ALT + DEL at the same time,

You will be getting the task manager windows

Click on File, New Task, Type: explorer.exe

This will solve the problem

Thanks
