Hi,

I opened after effects after not using it for a few weeks and my screen seems to be in full screen but some of it is off the screen.

I am using a Macbook and can't find a keyboard shortcut to allow me to come out of the full screen.

Any help would be appreciated..

Thanks Rebeccaaf.png

It sounds like you need to reset the preferences.  This is from the After Effects manual:

Reset preferences

To restore the default preference settings, press and hold the following keys while the application is starting.

  • Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows)
  • Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS)

This happens to me on occasion as I move from large monitor to laptop while on the go. Just press Command+\ (macOS) and everything will snap into view on the smaller monitor. I assume Control+\ does the same thing in Windows. This works in Premiere Pro too.

Hello, I also got this problem, but it just suddenly happened when I was editing something, and I tried using Ctrl+Alt+Shift, and I also tried Ctrl+/, yet none worked. 

 

Can I get any help on this?
