Windows 10 desktop - what the hell happened?

You know how, in Windows 10, if you click on the Start menu it will show a bunch of large, ugly icons such as photos, the weather, a few games, etc.? These icons, for reference, are the ones that occasionally spin randomly to show you different photos, for example.

Well, somehow my desktop has been taken over by these things. I want my old desktop back, with the small, non-spinny icons that line up where I want them and stay put.

I'm not sure...maybe these are "app" icons?

How can I restore my old-school desktop?

Thanks much!
