OT: How to get rest of task manager to reappear after mysteriously causing it disappear...

All:

I know this off topic, but I’m hoping that someone knows the answer to this problem I’m having with Task Manager. I’m not sure
exactly what I did, but I somehow caused the menu bar as well as the rest of the window except for process multicolumn control
(whatever that’s called) to disappear, so that the whole thing now resembles the process control with a outline around it and
nothing else. If I click on where the tabs are supposed to be, they don’t work, and the menu shortcuts don’t work. The only thing
that does work is ALT-F4, so I can at least get it to close, but otherwise, it has rendered task manager somewhat useless for me,
and I can’t seem to get it to revert to normal behavior.

I can’t imagine what the purpose of this mode of display was.

Thanks,

mm

Try double clicking the gray border (and I don’t know what the point of that
mode is either).
