It's been a couple of days since this happened.
I opened Windows task manager to close an application that had froze and now it has no Options up the top nor any blue bar up the top with the minimize & close options, how do I get this back?

I have Windows XP SP2

Is Explorer.exe running?

Press ALT + SPACEBAR to get the window control menu.

Hm, now that I've had a look at the task bar the while the Task Manager is open, there is no name, only the "Opening" look to it.
I have included a montage of what I see.

I've only have this happen to me once, but minimising and restoring the window using the taskbar seemed to do the trick. Not sure if its permanent.

Hm, I can't click anywhere apart from selecting the thing to close & The buttons at the bottom of the window.
I can change windows by pressing Crl + Tab. And the only way I can close it is by presing Alt + F4 or Esc.

I would have already guessed that...

But it seems to be an actual mode (and it's fun to replicate it too Laughing):

Just double-click the empty areas in the frame.
