OSCAR got my frontal lobotomy, suddenly doesn't know me. Please help

OSCAR got my frontal lobotomy, suddenly doesn't know me. Please help
Please, someone suggest how to fix this mess now and to mitigate future MS and W10 improvements that a misstep might bring?


OK, in a rash rush, brain dead, I hit the OFF button instead of shutting down properly. When restarted I had been helped: now, once happy with one, I have multiple desktops to choose from and add, shortcuts gone, task bar nearly emptied and the need to be searching and tunneling through menus to find user, programs and folders that used to be a click away. Sooo much MS help!! 

Not at all sharp on Windows, I thought there were Restore points and ini files that would revive you after crashes. No longer so, it seems.

I had switched to OSCAR painlessly and used it that way for several days. Now it doesn't know me; wants to start with a new profile, OSCAR being one of the icons present but not working on the desktop. Not its fault. It looks great, most immediately noticeable in my use was the desensitization of the once finicky tools for overriding and resetting Y-axis ranges and dotted lines in graphs.

When you log into Windows, is it telling you that you have a temporary profile? Or did you create a new profile (new login)? If new login, your old folders are located under C:\Users. There you will find all the user profiles.

You can click into your older profile name and you will see the Documents folder as well as your favorites, your old desktop, downloads etc. They can be copied to your new profile if you want to keep your new profile. The registry files are typically hidden but if you see ntuser.* files, not good to copy those. It probably won't let you over-write your current, in-use, ones but best not to try unless you want to create yet-another login.

It's easier to log into your older profile due to each user getting their own set of registry entries, application data folders etc but if that isn't an option you can look there for your stuff.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie
