Windows 7: Task Manager no longer showing all tabs. How to get back?

Task Manager no longer showing all tabs. How to get back?


My task manager has suddenly lost all of the tabs at the top, like processes, ect. Only showing running programs.
- How do I restore the default task manager with access to all of the resources, network, ect.???

- Ideas how/why it has suddenly changed? Have no idea why it has changed and lost the majority of management functionality - do not recall (knowingly) changing anything that would have had effects on task manager...

Thanks everybody
