I've just installed Magento on my localhost (XAMPP) server and I can't do anything with my panel. I can only do click on "Dashboard" and "Find partners & extensions".

Also, I can't see any interface icons.

I let you here a screen of my interface. I hope you can help me. Thanks beforehand.

Try this Before that take Backup

Remove everything, except .htaccess file from pub/static folder

Open up app/etc/di.xml find the path “Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Symlink” and replace to Magento\Framework\App\View\Asset\MaterializationStrategy\Copy

Note: Remove entire files and folder under pub/static except .htaccess file.
