I was in the settings tab and I clicked on enable whole screen view and now I can't get anything to come up on the screen. It just goes blank and I end up restarting the computer and the same thing happens each time. Also, I was going to uninstall the program and start over but I can't find the program to uninstall.

If you restart X-Plane and still see nothing, you can try quitting and removing the preferences folder found in the Output folder of your main X-Plane folder. The next time you start X-Plane it should begin windowed with the intro video. 

If you can figure out the exact steps and the rendering options settings that make this blank screen happen, please file a bug and attach the FULL log.txt file.
