My laptop hides everything on it, my files and applications I couldn’t find them. But When I check HD property I can see them but I can’t locate them so is there any way to bring them like the last time I used them.

I don't know what OS you are using. But, if Windows, to find out where they may be.

Create any type of file > Click "Save as" > A box will open allowing you to Name it and chose where you wish to save it to > these are the Folders which are the usual places > Word processing and spreadsheets will have gone into Documents . Jpg's will have gone into Pictures > Before saving, you could click on each one to see where the others have gone

If Windows, you could click on the Windows Logo > bottom left > and click Search > enter the first letter of a file you are looking for > click File Explorer > it will list any files starting with that letter > the second Column will tell you which Folder it is stored in

I'm using 'Explorer' -> Search bar in such cases - sounds relly dummy, but it could help.

What OS are you using?

Have you always had this problem or has it just started?

Have you had a pc before and were able to navigate through File and Folders with File Explorer and find your Progams/Apps Start menu?

sounds like a corrupt profile or you have opened a new profile that will not have access to your files.

With no feedback from the OP, we are wasting our time until we know more, It might be a Mac, for example
