Can't launch apps

Have a fedora 39 live usb. will launch on my dell laptop (windows 10 native) but cannot launch any of the apps. seems to let me connect to my wifi.

What exactly are you doing and what exactly happens when you do it?

I click on activities, or i press the Windows button, the screen shows the two windows and at the bottom it shows firefox, files, apps,etc. i click on any one of them it goes to the window screen, showing the water droplet, and a little circle spins for a few seconds then quits.
