One of my Excel 2010 workbooks 'suddenly' (no doubt as a result of something I did but I have no idea what triggered this) resized it's worksheet window (see attached image).

I've tried fiddling with Views and Workspace etc. but can't figure out how to return that workbook to it's normal default behaviour.

How can get my worksheet workspace back to it's normal, fully expanded, view?

You can also do: View > Window > Arrange AllTile.

Have you tried, via the ribbon, View > Window > Arrange All > Tile.

 If the min/max/close buttons are not available then the workbook has the Stucture protected.
 Review > Protect Workbook.

Wilder1626, I had tried those and neither suggestion was resizing the worksheet window.

ProfessorJimJam:  correct, I had protected the Structure.  What is weird is that I don't seem to get predictable behaviour from enabling that function.  I had protected the structure a while back and worked with the spreadsheet for a few hours before it displayed the window resizing.  It does seem that removing the Project Workbook restores the worksheet window.  Re-protecting the workbook with the structure option enabled doesn't shrink the window back down oddly enough.
