I have windows xp professional and when I open the task manager all I get is a graph the shows the CPU usage and CPU usage history. How do I get it back to its default setting? I have tried everything I can think of and nothing works.

there are no tabs. its just a grey box with two graphs. the top of the graph on the left says "cpu usage" and the one on the left says "cpu usage history".

I got it. apparently I had double clicked the top border of the graph which set it in "tiny footprint mode". Was a simple matter of double clicking the same border to set it back to default. Thanks for the help guys, its appreciated.

Aaa found it! [url=http://support.microsoft.com/search/preview.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q314227]Q314227[/url] SYMPTOMS The menu bar and tabs may not be visible in Task Manager. CAUSE 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. RESOLUTION To switch Task Manager to its typical display mode, double-click the top border of the window.
