Lost my desktop

All my desktop icons are gone. Only wallpaper is left. Desktop area is not sensible to mouse actions (left or right clicks do nothing, I can’t select areas either).

The bottom panel is fine and working, but the rest of the desktop is gone, leaving the wallpaper as a shadow of its former glory, lets say.

Rebooting did not help. Restarting cinnamon from the panel did not help.

Came back after shutting down and booting again. Weird. Solved. Sorry for the inconvenience.
