    App icons on start up screen moved. How do I move them back

    All installed apps on my pc were shown as icons with description in a docking bar on the left side my start screen when I left clicked the windows icon on my taskbar. Now when I click that icon, I just get two icons at top left "pinned apps" and "all apps". When I click on "all apps", the icons and their decriptions are superimposed over my entire screen. Can anyone tell me how I can put the icons back where they were? When I try to use the snipping tool to explain, the icons disappear

    Hello deemby,

    It sounds like you may have either turned on full screen Start or tablet mode. Turning off the culprit should sort this for you if this is the cause.

    Start Full-screen - Turn On or Off in Windows 10

    Tablet Mode - Turn On or Off in Windows 10
