My start button loocks like a 4 pane window. I click it and it opens ALL APPS, POWER, SETTINGS, etc. But there is no text box in which to type commands. Where did it go- how do I get it back?

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
