Just let it do it's thing. Chkdsk will take a long time, especially if there are lot of inconsistencies on the disk.

Unfortunately in Win8/10 it doesn't output the status very well other than what's shown there. Once it's done, you can look in Event Viewer to find the results of the chkdsk, if you're curious.

If you just do a reverse image search one either one like I suggested you can get a higher res version. That one is pretty low res.

Good to hear that chkdsk did it's job and got it working for you.
