press the tab key you will see a dotted line appear round the start button,

pressing tab moves the dotted line,

when it gets on to the desktop it will appear round the first icon on the desktop.

Then use the up and down arrow keys to move to the other shortcuts on the desktop

Unfortunately, a complete (human) memeory lapse lead me into a course of action that compounded the problem before I remembered system restore or recovery console.

As ever, grateful thanks for trying to help.
