Windows 7: Screen Stretched Horizontally

Screen Stretched Horizontally

Iv looked hard but cant work this out.

Sometime ago I was looking at something on the screen and must have hit a key or two and the screen stretched out, so now rifles look really long etc. Apparently pets cats do this a bit, walking cross the keyboard. I see the various commands with the windows key and another key or two, but no luck yet returning it to normal. Screen Resolution doesn't help, it will only go high or low, and not as high as it should.

A clue might be, to turn on Wi-Fi, I only need to press the wi-fi light, I dont have to press the FN and F8 together. (Got a Wifi driver too)

Any idea which keys to press to get in back to normal?

Hi,
I can only guess try Ctrl and use the scroll wheel or the minus key one or twice or the number 0 key ?

Thanks, sounds familiar! It might have been the + or - ...

Having looked through the settings it can be a nightmare, pressing one key does something, then holding that key does another, turn on stick keys makes it do something else, pressing the shift key 5 times turns on sticky keys!!

Annoyance interlude completed!
