Unhappy Help Black Screen!! - Ctrl Alt Esc


I was trying to pull up the task manager and hit Ctrl+Alt+Esc.

A white X came up, and now my desktop is a big black screen. How do I revert back??

What distro are you using?

You should be able to hit control + alt + F1, log in, reboot, and you will be fine.
