Desktop went from tradional icons to apps

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?

@1NS

 

Operating System:  Not provided

 

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
