Hi, I foolishly tried cleaning my keyboard with the iMac switched on. now the Desktop has become enlarged and so has a second monitor that I use. Both now have the same wallpaper and icons (they didn't before) and both now have their own dock. Both screens show exactly the same when I open things such as safari etc.

I have tried cmd/- and zooming is already swathed off.

Any help would be gratefully received.

Welcome to Mac-Forums..

You've managed to hit the Mirror Display shortcut. Hit CMD+F1 and it will go back to the way it was before, which is likely where your second display extended the main display..

You might want to keep this handy the next time your keyboard cleaning puts the iMac into some other funny state..
