    This morning, my icons on the taskbar have suddenly turned into icons with names of open apps and tabs. I didn't change anything, but did recently have an update. I prefer to not have the names showing. I know what the icons are and prefer to point at it to choose a tab, etc. How do I get the names to go away?

    Right click on the taskbar > Settings. Scroll down to Combine taskbar buttons drop down menu (situated just above Notification area section).

    In the drop down menu select "Always hide labels". Done.
