  1. Hello,

    i dont knwo what i did,
    but now my task manager looks like this

    I wanna get it back to normal (get that blue bar round it),
    so that i can choose between applicatiosn process' etc,
    and minimixe maxime etc

    (sorry about the link lay out tho, wouldnt let me put it normally

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Have you tried a System Restore point back to before this happened?

    but surely there must be an easier/quicker option.

    Knew it would be,

    "This problem is easy to fix, the Task Manager is running in "tiny footprint mode". To correct this, simply double-click on the border around the window and it will return to its normal state. To place task manager back in "tiny footprint mode" again, double click again on the border around the window."

    The question then is, what was so 'tiny' about it? The image is the same size. Kind of a useless trick!
