How to get Task Manager back to its original screen

Hallo,

I am not sure what I pressed on my keyboard, but somehow my Task Manager ended up looking as you can see from the picture below, without its menus. How do I get it back to its original state?

Thank you for your help.

Press Ctrl+Page Down several times until you see the network traffic graphs.

Double click on one of the graphs.

Just double click in any of the border areas. This is the little known small footprint mode. I don't know if it was ever officially documented.
