Puzzled old man looking for answer

I am 76 and not very computer savy. I get by but when something changes I
have a hard time figuring out why.

From time to time I use the Ctrl+Alt+Del to look at the Windows task
Manager to se if a program is responding or not. Most of the time it's just
my old pc being slow.

When I opened the Task manager a box would open with the title at the top
"Windows Task Manager". There were three tabs. One shows what applications
are running, another shows a running graph of the CPU usage and I forget
what the third one showed.

A few days ago that changed. Now I get the box but it is untitled and has
no X to close it. There is now only the one box showing the applications in
use. In order to shut the box I have to click on the icon in the task bar
and then click "close" in the menu.

Any ideas as to what is going on and how I can get the old manager back?

TIA

Double click anywhere outside of the area where the processes are
listed. For example, the white space down beside the End Process
button, or anywhere around the thin white border of the window. Each
double click should toggle the window between the two states. Quit
when you have it the way you want it.
