Something is misconfigured for your user and apparently, the window manager xfwm4 isn't automatically being launched.
You can run it from the terminal if you want with `xfwm4 & disown` but you'll need to do this manually every time.
The best solution I can provide is to create a new user with `sudo adduser name`, so that you have all the default settings restored for that new one
