Windows 10: Window Icon on Task Bar Changed to Text List Solved

    Window Icon on Task Bar Changed to Text List

    The Window Icon, first icon on the taskbar is no longer graphical. Nothing happens when I left click on it. A right click brings up a long list including Programs and Features, Power Options, Event Viewer, System, etc.. I do not recall changing any desktop settings. What did I do to cause this change? Could it be because I just starting using the Edge browser? How can I get the Window Icon to revert back to its original state?

    See the example shown in the bottom left portion of the following image.
