Task Manager Query

Hi guys great forums, keeps me amused for hours on end, can you just check something though, when you press ctl + alt + del and choose task manager is this what you see. It seems a bit strange for a Windows dialog box, where is the ok or cancel button?? Using 32bit version.

Another way to access task manager is right click on task bar and select task manager.

It's small, but what I'm guessing is you're missing the menu bar?

You probably double clicked an empty part of the menu, which hides it, double click the top white border part again and it should re-appear

Hello Hybridfan,

It looks like you are in small footprint mode in Task Manager. Double clicking on one of the edges as BGF suggested should return in back to normal for you.
