For years of use, Google Tasks put a checkmark by completed tasks. You could, whenever you wished, delete all completed tasks.

But starting a few days ago, any completed task is immediately whisked away.

Is there any way to go back to the long-standing procedure?

In the official interfaces, I don't think there's any way to make them not immediately clear/hide a task you check off.

I find that "feature" (and many others) annoying, so I built my own Google Tasks interface you can use for free. It will keep your completed tasks there until you clear/hide them yourself.

Feel free to try it out: https://tasks.gtaskd.com/
