Archicad 20 disappeared from my front computer screen

My Archicad just disappeared from the front page of the computer and I do not know how to access it.  I have a complex project almost complete.  I just saved it.  When I went to reopen, I am guessing that I dragged the image off the page or maybe clicked to delete it?  I know the file is there but I am not clear how to access it.  where can I read up on this?  I am afraid if I do the wrong thing, I may lose all of my files on this project.

That would be just a shortcut to start the Archicad program I assume.

Have a look in your recycle bin and if it is there you can restore it.

 

Otherwise just go to the Windows button (lower left) and search for the Archicad program there.

Start it and the files you have been working on should be in the recent documents list.

 

Or go into Windows File Explorer, find the file and simply double click it.

Archicad should start and load that file.
