    I don't know if this has been posted before, or if anyone cares. But I found this little feature the other day and decided to share it. Comment if you wish.

    Run task manager
    Click "Performance' tab
    Double click on the 'CPU Usage' or 'PF Usage' graph (not *History)

    You can resize these windows to your liking. Useless, but what the heck.

    Enjoy.

    It even has a name. It is called 'Tiny footprint mode'. See Microsoft KB Q193050 .
    You can switch between the tabs using the arrow keys.
    Every now and then there is a thread in forums which usually starts with "Help, my taskmanager is damaged.." or something like that.

    Yeah, someone had come into the IRC channel some days ago, panicking about not being able to see menus in Task Manager.

    I just told him to double click the grey area . He was shocked. :D
