Windows 7: Scanned Document Under Desktop Icons

Scanned Document Under Desktop Icons

Hello guys

Acer Aspire Laptop. W10

I had my Laptop on and it was taking a very long time to open a progarmme so I forced it to close.
WhenI turned it back on I find that a scanned document is now open in large letters on the entire screen with the Desktop icons above.

I found the document in the Scanned Documents folder and deleted it, turned the computer off normally, and back on again, expecting to see the screen back to normal.

It is just the same, no change.

Any idea how to rectify this, please.

Thank you


Thank you.
