Windows Task Manager messed up. Please help!

Ok. I don't know exactly what I did, but now when I go to the Task Manager, it no longer has the tabs at the top that say "Applications" "Processes" "Users" etc.

And no "x" in the corner to close it.

And no information at the bottom about how many processes are in use, the commit charge, percent usage.

I have XP home.

Thank you for any help you can give.

Double-click on the border around the Task Manager's window and the tabs and stuff should come back.

Wow. That worked. I'm so dense sometimes. I had tried right clicking all over the place but not double clicking.

Thanks so much!!!!!

I learned something, thanks X. I would use that view if it kept the Min, restore, close buttons.
