    Windows 10 to win8.1 taskbar problem

    Hello, i just made my account here i just want to ask how to fix my problem with my taskbar

    After win 10 is release i upgraded after a few days, and i notice that win10 boot is very slow so i decided to return to win 8.1. i used the option in settings, recovery return to win8.1.
    And when i finish my downgrade I notice that when i right click the pinned program in my taskbar it shows a blue background and a Close and Pin icon (which you can see in Win 10). I just want to have the normal taskbar like before.

    in short heres what i did

    From Windows 8.1 > Windows 10 > Return to Win 8.1 (taskbar problem) > Reset Everything (hoping to fix this)
    and viola i still have this.

    Is there a way to fix this one? anyone have the same problem with me after downgrade?

    I found a fix!

    I had some problems after installing Windows 10 and I had do downgrade my PC back to Windows 8.1 just like you!
    So, I had the same problem with my taskbar icons in the right-click menu in Windows 8.1. I found a fix

    To fix this, you need to uninstall an update called (KB3072318).

    To do this, go to Control Panel, click System and Security, than click on Windows Update,

    The Windows Update window will appear. Then, in the left menu, click on "Show Update History".
    In the Update History window, click on Installed Updates then find the (KB3072318) update and right-click it and choose uninstall.
    To finish, Reboot your computer and it should be all fixed

    Good luck!
