Resolved Question

Task Manager controls vanished

by pc-woe / September 5, 2011 8:16 PM PDT

hello all - I somehow removed the controls on the Task Manager box. One section opens and the only buttons available are "show processes from all users" and "end process". Luckily, with no "close" button available, I can close it by right clicking on its menu icon and hit "close". So what have I done and how to fix it?
thanx - pcwoe

Could it be in mini-mode?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
