Desktop went from tradional icons to apps

HP Recommended

My desktop envy went from having the tradional desktop icons to havings all the computer apps showing on the desktop instead. I cannot figure out how to go back to having my desktop icons.  I have to now click on my computer to reach my former desktop icons.  Does anyone now how to revert back whatever changes have taken place?

The following article for Windows 8.1 explains how to boot to your Desktop instead of the Start Screen:  How to Skip the Start Screen and Boot to the Desktop in Windows 8.1
