    Task Manager "Show Columns" under View Menu is missing

    Hi All,

    Yesterday, I could pick and choose many columns to show in Task Manager under the Processes tab by selecting "Select Columns" in the View menu.
    Today, when I look in the View menu, I have no "Select Columns" option to choose. I can't for the life of me figure out where it went or why it would have disappeared. I can Right Click on the columns and see a few stock column options, but yesterday there were MANY options to choose from.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Thanks for the reply. I'm able to select from certain columns, hence my screen shot is the same as yours. What is NOT available, which should be, is this:

    aka: The ability to choose from ALL AVAILABLE columns and display the one you wish.
