Windows 7: Task Manager window borders missing

Task Manager window borders missing

OS Win 7 64bit
I noticed that task manager no longer has any borders, including menus. (I attached an image of TM) I can't remember the last time I used TM, so I have no idea how long it's been like this. This is isolated to TM only. This issue doesn't exist anywhere else that I know of. When I do use TM I usually use it to close a frozen program or to stop a process. Does anyone have any ideas or feedback regarding this issue.Thank you.

Hello Baron,

You have Task Manager in small footprint mode. You could just double click within a border to return Task Manager back to normal mode.

@Brink,
Worked like a charm! Thanks a lot. Really had me stumped. I would have never guessed.
