The open office symbol is to the left of this.

Switch off the system as follows.

Press the power button and hold it pressed for at least 10 seconds.

The system should turn off. Then you can turn it back on and see how it behaves second time around.

Be prepared for a message saying you have closed windows down wrongly, and for a test that may be run. Don't worry about this - just let it happen and check the system eventually comes on as normal.

Thank you very much. I had spent 3 hours trying to get myself out of that fix.
