    Taskbar icon discriptions

    I inadvertently clicked on something that added descriptions to the icons in my taskbar. How can I find the screen to reverse this annoyance? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Captain Softie,

    I'm not 100% sure this is what you mean, but perhaps try right-clicking the Taskbar and select properties. Look for the section that says "Taskbar Buttons." Click that and see if changing that selection to "Never Combine, Hide Labels" changes anything. (I was unclear if all of your taskbar icons are showing text or just the actives ones)
