Default MS EDGE gone weird !

Using windows 10 and ms Edge browser on a desktop pc .
As of today when I open Edge browser on my desktop , instead of a full screen view I get a narrow window about 1/4 of the screen opening on the right of the screen . I can not drag it across or widen it with the mouse . I have found that I can get full screen view by pressing F11 key , which is new to me , but then I lose the taskbar at the bottom and the toolbar across the top . Again I have now found that by moving the cursor to the top of the screen I get my toolbar back , but it is temporary and vanishes when I move the cursor . Whilst the home page is in the narrow view it does have the taskbar and toolbar visible .
Everything was fine when I shut down last night , but was changed when I switched on this morning ; I really don't feel it is anything I have accidentally done
Anybody know what has happened ?

The disappearing task bar is a setting in Windows. "Right click" the task bar, select "task bar settings" and deselect any of the options for "automatically hide task bar".

Just had a look there again ; they are all deselected already .
There is a section there for multiple displays but the choices are all disabled and I can't use them

That's odd, not sure what's going on in that case .

On the top right of your browser (edge) window are three symbols, a minus (-) sign, a square (⬜) and a cross (x)...

Use these to hide the window in the task bar, minimise/maximise the window, or close the window. I think your browser window has been minimised, so clicking on the second icon should restore it to maximised window size.

Thanks for that Kevin.
I know the symbols you refer to , but there is another problem with them !
When I open the browser , the window is to the far right of the screen and only displays the left side of that window , about 1/4 of full width ; I am not able to scroll across the window to get to the right hand side where the symbols you refer to would be , as there is no slide bar on it and it won't drag with the mouse .
I can change it to full screen using F11 and then if I put the mouse to the top of that screen I get my tool bar and can see the 3 symbols . But here's the problem , in this view the square you mention is not a square but 2 arrows pointing at each other ! I guess this is an option to minimise , and if I click on it the window does go back to a narrow view at the right of my screen .
Back to square one
A puzzle is that the narrow window does not look like a full window with both sides defined ; it is as if the right of the window is off screen to the right . Is taht making sense ?

Have you tried holding down the windows key and use the curser keys to show full screen?
