Stuck with TV set as default display

Hi,
While trying to fix displaying of my desktop win10 desktop on my samsung smart tv, I set the tv as the default display.
Now, when I switch the tv on, I loss control on the performance of my pc. The desktop pc shows all the icons of my desktop, but any step I do, running a browser, opening outlook, etc. show only on my tv. A real nuisance.

I can open display setting, but since my act shows only on the tv, which is located in another room, all my efforts
to change setting and configure my pc as the default screen failed.
When I switch the tv off, I find no way to change the display configuration.
How can I regain
control on my pc?

Re: settings

This seems a typical job for 2 persons: you at the PC, a friend, neighbor, family member or so in the other room and communicate via talking and walking.

Solved

Got a solution from a user on another board:

With the TV turned on, press these in turn with a slight pause between them and you'll get the display back on your computer so you can sort things out -
