Projector Bug, need help

So what I did was plug a projector into my laptop and tried the extend feature.
But after removing the projector my laptop screen was still on extend.
Is there a way to return it to normal?
I already tried windows+p and chose computer only, and nothing happened.

What do you mean "nothing happened?"

Hi! bebo95, welcome to 7F

Have you seen this?
Presentation Settings - Turn On or Off

There are ways to turn off presentations in both options.

Did you do this before or after you dis-connected the projector?

If after, re-connect the projector, and then try w+p

The only other thing I can think of for now would be to go to the display tab of your graphics card, and see if you can change it back there.


EDIT:
Try CTRL+ALT+F7 If you see a confirmation box for settings click Yes

If that works try CTRL+ALT+F8 to go back to extended.

On most laptops, when you reboot without any external displays connected, it will revert back to the proper setting.

ditto with deaconfrost.. a restart should almost always solve the problem.. i use my projector from time to time ony my acer and at times the fn+f6 just would not solve it so i simply remove the data cable and restart my computer..
