    Normally, (On every other computer I own and have owned), Windows Task Manager has a normal Windows window (you can X it to close it, -- to minimize, hit the square to adjust the size, etc.), and can shut down or restart your computer from task manager. On my laptop, Task Manager does none of that. It simply appears as a box and just shows the programs running inside. I have to close it from the taskbar at the bottom right corner. Does anyone know how I can adjust this where it looks normal and has the restart capabilities?

    This behavior may occur if Task Manager is running in Tiny Footprint mode.
    If you double-click the empty space in the border around the tabs, Task Manager switches to this mode. To switch Task Manager to its typical display mode, double-click the top border of the window.

    Thanks!! I wasn't aware of this little trick. Works as described (and hope as designed!)
