Angry how to restore back the gnome original desktop

Hello Friends!

I was exploring linux Red hat 9. and I found in system tools

that i can switch the desktop or switch to another mode.

for example like KDE and Gnome and others.

After I switch from Gnome window to text window then I am stuck.

I cannot go back to my gnome. in that text mode I can use open shell.

so how can restore my original gnome desktop.

Anyone please kindly give me advise.
