    My kids playing with the laptop managed to accidentally totally mess up the way desktop is set up.
    For starters they switched option for sight impared users which introduced high contrast.
    I switchged it of and back to normal colors.

    But now my classick Windows look where I had icons of apps and documents has been changed to tiles.
    There are plenty of tutorials how to get rid of tiles. Following them I unpinned all the tiles but still I see no option to return to the old look. Here are few screens showing the current look and feel. Any suggestions?

    :)

    Your desktop icons may be hidden.

    Right click on display, and select show desktop icons

    It would be wise to make a new User profile for your kids

    @AndreTen is correct. Your screenshot shows that you are in Tablet Mode. The clues are the arrow icon to the right of Start and the on-screen keyboard icon to the left of the time/date.

    To get out of tablet mode, click on the notifications icon, far right in the taskbar, then click on the Tablet mode tile to turn it off.
