    I cannot find my taskbar (it's not hidden, no) and the back button doesn't do anything. I've restarted my computer. I've been looking for a solution for over 2 hours and I've found nothing similar to this.
    All the windows I've opened since this happened (last night) cannot be made any smaller, they're all maxed out across my screen and can only be minimized into nothing.

    I don't recall doing anything, I just closed my laptop to do something for a bit and when I opened it, it was like this. I also could not use my keyboard at all, until I restarted.

    ??? I closed my laptop cos I was frustrated with it and when I opened it back up, it was right again. I still don't know what happened, but it's fixed. For now.
