Desktop hidden

I cannot see wifi connections, appvm, etc.

You can try this if you are missing the panel

Same thing happened to me yesterday. Here’s how you can solve that inconvenience:

  1. Right click on the desktop wallpaper.
  2. Click on Open Terminal Here.
  3. Run the command xfce4-panel, then close the terminal, it should appear again.

If you want to close the terminal emulator window afterward while keeping the panel, you might need to do xfce4-panel & (i.e., add the & in order to run the process in the background so that it doesn’t end when you close the terminal emulator window).
