    Why does my taskbar look like this?


    I recently restarted my computer to factory mode and when it finished restarting I logged on the the computer I noticed how my taskbar looked like this whenever I right clicked a program Click image for larger version(a closer lookClick image for larger version). This is annoying me, I want it to go back to the default one which is this Click image for larger version.


    Can anyone help me?
