    Pressing CONTROL / ALT / DELETE always used to bring up the TASK MANAGER window.
    From there one could check on APPLICATIONS / PROCESSES / PERFORMANCE, as well as CPU usage.

    At the bottom of the window there would be buttons for END TASK / SWITCH TASK / NEW TASK. In the top right corner there would be an X that could be clicked on to close the box.

    My problem is, that when I press CTRL / ALT / DEL a TASK MANAGER window pops up, but it only shows what program is currently running and nothing else, except the bottom buttons. Nothing at the top (including no X) except the words TASK MANAGER.

    The only way to get rid of it is to reboot. It can't even be reduced.

    Anyone have any idea what happened or how it can be restored to the norm?

    Thanks ---

    Double click on a grey area of the Task Manager box, should bring back the tabs...

    You are indeed DISTINGUISHED.

    Problem solved, but it just seems there should be more to the solution than jjst double clicking. :)

    Thank you for the prompt reply and more importantly --- The fix.
