Home Screen

HP Envy

Hello!

I've had my HP envy for over  a year now and recently ran into a problem with my home display screen. When turning it on it would always turn onto my background display with my different folders everywhere, but now it locked itself into a different kind of screen. Now when I turn it on it does show somewhat of my background, but with the different apps displayed as it I had pressed the windows key. I have tried almost everything and can't get it back to normal. 

 

Is there any way to reset my laptop to how it used to be?

 

Please help!

 

Thank you,

Neesee
