Windows 7: How to restore default task manager

How to restore default task manager

Sometime back I was having heavy load on the system as Malwarebytes was scanning - I was browsing on FF at the same time. I thought of looking into which processes are slowing the system.. I don't know what I did - as far as I recall I tried to drag Task Manager to a different location or was trying to check system loads but I lost all the options to check them.


Attaching the screenshot of what I get when I open windows task manager even after finishing the scan. That's the only thing I can see, not even close window button.

Hi goodlad,

if you want to restore the Tabs and Menus on Task Manager, then double click on the Task Manager window boarder, or double click in space between "show processes from all users" and "end process".

Performing a mouse double-click should restore your Task Manager to its original condition.
