Docker does not turn on well in Windows 10

Hello, recently started using docker, but since yesterday it does not turn on well, it hangs in “starting”, when I try to see the containers that I have in the windows terminal with the ps command or I try to use any other command this message appears
“error during connect: This error may indicate that the docker daemon is not running.: Get http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.24/containers/json: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified”

I also got this error id in the desktop version of docker:


the version of window 10 that I have is 1909
and the version of docker that I have is 20.10

any idea what’s going on?
and how can i fix it?

I have this same issue. Hopefully someone has a solution.
