    Do as Caroline suggested first.

    If it doesn't work -

    Use the Snipping tool and snip around the whole screen including task bar and all top bars just the same as when you did one of the task bar. (Use FTM page open -we don't want to see your desk top stuff)

    that film strip bit to the right of the small circle does say Task View, can I get rid of it?
    Also really odd but when I open the snipping toolm everything in the taskbar and down the side disappears so cannot show you.

    Have you clicked on the picture of the film strip - this is actually a button which switches task View on and off.

    Press it. That should stop the tiling.

    Then you need to click on each page and press f11 then the cross. If no cross, press f11 again and then the cross.

    When you have task view on, you get little versions of everything that you have open on the desktop and the Snipping tool is maximised. Once you've pressed the task view button and got rid of the tiling it will be normal size.
