    Where is the Desktop

    I want to go to the Desktop in Windows 10. I have a book that says the spot to click is to the right of the Clock/Time spot on the right of the taskbar. That doesn't work for me.

    Right Click on the Start icon at the far left of the Taskbar and select Desktop.
    Alternatively, hit Windows key + X and click on Desktop.

    I did as you requested. No Desktop. Is it possible I don’t have a Desktop?

    If So, where do I go to create a desktop?

    Right Click on the Start icon at the far left of the Taskbar and select Desktop.
    As Jerry said, Desktop should be at the bottom of the list.
    You can also right click on an empty spot of the taskbar and there will be a selection of "Show the Desktop".
    Also, right click taskbar, choose properties>Toolbars>then put a checkmark in Desktop and apply.

    I did right click on the Taskbar, and I did go to the desktop.

    Pertaining to another problem I have, Making the Taskbar go away, I now have a button on the Taskbar for the Desktop.

    It sounds like you are, or have been, in Tablet mode.
    You can click the Action Center icon in the Notification Area to turn on/off the Tablet mode setting:



    Once out of Tablet mode, the Desktop is accessible by methods shown above.
