Here's an update
So my original fix worked on that day, but now I still got the black screen with the 3 loading dots. I decided to unplug my Anker Powerline usb-c to usb 3.0 cable from the CableCreation extender and plug the Anker cable it directly into my PC. Still got the black screen. I restarted the Quest and clicked OK the link up and it seems to work again. I got the gray VR room with the grids and a pop-up message stating
"Error Occured. You have a pending hardware issue that is preventing you from starting a VR app."
I clicked OK and it takes me to my desktop Oculus navigation menu. I'm in! So now I re-plugged the Anker cable back into the CableCreation extender and it still works.
Maybe this was just a one time thing, a fluke. I decided to restart my Quest again and clicked OK to get linked up. It still works! However, I still get the Error Occured message, and after clicking OK it took me to the desktop Oculus navigation menu.
Update # 2:
I figured out why I wasn't able to launch any desktop Oculus games. On the desktop Oculus navigation menu, I clicked on Desktop Mode and opened the Oculus app. Clicked on Devices and Clicked on the Quest and Touch, then clicked on Device Setup and Continue. It prompted me to update the Oculus Link app. After doing that my games were launchable. However, after restarting the Quest I still got the black screen again. I repeated the trick of plugging in my Anker cable directly into the PC and it got rid of the black screen after restarting and reconnecting. Then I connected the Anker cable back into the CableCreation extendsion and it still works.
I decided to restart my Quest again with the Anker cable still connected to the CableCreation extension and it still works. Seems like the only solution right now is if it ever gets the black screen, I'll have to resort to the temporary fix I mentioned above
