See whether this helps. Right click on the top of the blank window and see whether you have a "Restore" options. Then click on that.

Hello JubJub, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It appears that you have Task Manager in small footprint mode. Double clicking on any white boder area should return Task Manager back to normal.
