    How to get back recent taskbar changed by MS?

    [Desktop Dell Inspiron 560 4gb RAM; high speed cable; MS Windows10, 64bit; Windows Live Mail 2012(awful!!!); MS Word Pro 2003; Mozilla Firefox; AvastAV; Windows Media Player; Adobe Reader; Adobe flash Player]

    Yesterday (1-22-16) my email program came all back after being deprived of it for the last 2 full weeks.
    BUT. . .I don't like what they did with my taskbar! Could someone please tell me how to change it back to how it was?

    Now each time I have to switch from email to browser, I have to click several times on their vertical up/down arrows. This isn't working for me.

    Anyone help please? Thanks so very much!!! Adela
