  3. Task manager opens minimized.

    Task manager changed and now opens minimized. It maximizes with no problem with a click but I would like to revert to avoid this step in a problem situation.

    Open Task Manager in Windows 10


    Use the Hide when Minimized option and then right-click restore.
    Which also hides the taskbar icon.
