Unable to bring docker desktop GUI on clicking docker icon in system tray. Its always showing docker desktop is starting

I have installed docker desktop long time ago. Since yesterday, My docker desktop GUI is not showing up on clicking docker icon in system tray. Its always showing docker desktop is starting…

Not sure what is the issue. Now I cannot switch from linux to windows, as I am not getting the GUI.

I’m in the same situation, except it’s my first run. I download Docker and install it ( after several tries) and after that When I click the icon to open the program I get the same problem “docker desktop is starting…” and it close.

so you haven’t got it resolved yet, right?

Yes , it’s not resolved yet
I struggle to get docker lunched.
