    Task Manager (Win XP Pro)

    I am running Windows XP Pro on my machine but when I go to Task Manager, all I have is the attached screen. I don't have the normal Applications, Process.. tabs. I wonder what is the cause and how I can fix it.

    Thanks

    Does this persist after restarting the computer?

    Hi, swhli ~

    All you need to do is double-click the top grey window border there and they will come right back. I don't know what purpose this "functionality" serves, but double-clicking on the borders will hide your tabs and double-clicking again will bring them back.

    This is the well know 'Tiny Footprint' mode - see MSKB 314227 - it allows you to run TaskManager in a much smaller window (i.e. resizable) than otherwise allowed.

    Purpose? If you don't have access to other monitors, you can use it for graphs to monitor CPU usage or Network use. Nothing to write home about, but handy nevertheless.
