I don;t know what I might have done.
The task manager (Crtl-Alt-Esc) shows only the processes list and not the
app list not any of the other tabs.
How can I get the old display back?

Thanks,
Ernesto

It sounds like you're running Task Manager in "Small Footprint
Mode." Simply double-click anywhere along the top or side borders to
return to a normal view. Alternatively, pressing <Ctrl>+<Tab> will
allow you to cycle between the various displays, and <Alt>+<F4> will
close it.
