Trying to load VLC to play BluRay disks I really screwed up Windows 10.

It seems I somehow changed some settings and don't know which ones I changed or how to get Windows back to where it was.

Here are some of the things that no longer work. One Drive will not load. I can only get Windows Setting and File Exlorer to come up when I press the left button on my mouse . All my shortcuts on my desktop are gone. The new shortcut for the Leawo Blu-ray Player is there and works. There is also a short cut for Google Chrome but it does not work. I can use Microsoft Edge but it does't seem to save things I change. World of Warcraft and all my other programs will load.

Thanks

Restore the system to a point before you started the changes.
Windows key - type restore point in the search box.

Loading VLC WILL NOT cause all those issues.

Sounds like Win is well & truly screwed up. Perhaps you downloaded VLC from a bogus website & it was bundled with malware (unlikely though)

restore options here. To get to control panel, right click the Win icon bottom left corner of the screen (since your WIn key isnt working)
