Yesterday I must have hit something by mistake and got the Windows desktop with no shortcuts and no cursor. Tried various buttons, but no effect.Couldn't go to start to log off. Pc wouldn't switch off on front off unit. Only way to re-boot was to switch off on my anti-surge socket. Was there a quicker way should I be hamfisted again?

Is everything back to normal now?

Remember that the switch on the front panel may have to be held in for several seconds before it responds.

Edstow.
Sorry couldn't get the first letter of your name.
Yep. Everything was OK soon as I switched back on. Normally switches off with one quick press when I don't shutdown via the desktop. Bear your comment in mind for next time. Cheers.
