An inadvertent act by me that I don't know how to undo

I hope someone can help me undo something I accidentally triggered. While I had the Windows Task Manager open I guess I must have right-clicked the icon for Firefox (at any rate, I did some clicking that was not intended to apply to Windows Task Manager but it unintentionally did just that) and suddenly the Windows Task Manager changed its appearance to a stripped down version, which is bad enough, but the bigger problem is that now there's no obvious way to close it. Once you open it, it's stuck there on the screen--I have to physically drag it to the edge of the screen to get the darned thing out of the way!! After trying all the obvious things I could think of and failing, I figured I would just restart my computer and that would return the Task Manager to its normal, default status. WRONG! My computer is back on, but Windows Task Manager still is in this new version where it's both stripped down and impossible to close once you open it. Can someone knowledgeable about arcane matters like this one please give me very specific step-by-step instructions to follow to return the Windows Task Manager to its normal configuration?
Very grateful in advance for any help,
Roger (graviton37)

Double-left click anywhere between the border of the window that is resizeable, and the list of running processes.
