Lost my task manager

I have been fiddling around closing programs to free up capacity to encode video and somehow I have altered my task manager so that it now does not show the shortcuts and menus but only shows the list of active programs. No idea how I have done this but if anyone knows a fix I'd like to know.

Thanks in advance,


Kristen

OK, this is one of these really annoying Windows things - until you know how to fix it. Open Task Manager so you get your list of progs (Ctrl+Alt+Del) then just double-click the border. Hey presto !! Annoying ain't it ? (if it's what you mean of course)

By the way apparently the official term for it is "Kiosk" mode.....personally I think they should have named it "This'll Really Throw 'Em" mode

yes it's happened to me and took me ages to figure out

it's quite annoying when you don't know why or how it's done it

andy is spot on
