Weird Task Manager Problem

Hi guys,

I know this post isn't strictly related to the forum topic, but it's such a
general question that I didn't know where else to post it! Feel free to
suggest a more suitable alternative! ;)

I'm having some very weird problems with Task Manager. When I open it now,
it doesn't show the tabs at the top to switch between processes, networking,
etc... Instead it appears as a flat window with no maximise/minimise buttons.
How would I go about fixing this? I don't think the functionality I've
"found" is by design! Task Manager is now practically unusable.

Suggestions greatfully received.

Many thanks,

Steve.

Try dobule clicking in an empty area (outside other controls) within your
"new " task manager :-)

Cheers,

Hi Steve,

As Nimesh replied, you can use double-click to switch between these two
styles of the Task Manager window.

Thanks guys, that worked a treat! I can't believe I didn't know that after
seven years of working in development!

Cheers,

Steve.
