    Looks like I have missed something. Using Windows 8.1 Task Manager, the title I get, right at the top, only says "TASK MANAGER", not Windows task Manager. I don't have the "help" option on the top bar, either.
    Anyone?

    I see this is a very old OP. Maybe for Windows 8?

    Sure - I meant yours was normal on 8,1.. Same as mine - no help tab etc. Sorry if I wasn't clear.
