How to reboot to windows 10 from Microsoft Server 2019

So I was trying to install Microsoft Server 2019 from here

https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/evalcenter/evaluate-windows-server-2019?filetype=ISO

Which I exceeded in but I did not realize that it would effect the computer the way it did.

Now all I am seeing after I boot on my computer is a command prompt tittled

Administrator:c\windows\system32\cmd.exe

I tried to use task manager too boot explorer.exe but it said that I do not have the file or something like this. I think I have wiped my computer of everything.

I do not care if all of my files are lost as I have them backed up but how can I restore windows 10 on my computer?

Thanks

    Sounds like you may have installed Server 2019 core mode. Try again but choose a Desktop Experience option
