I can't go back to duplicate display because my laptop screen is destroyed and I only use VGA Monitor. I accidentally extended the display and since the laptop monitor is destroyed, I can't set it back to duplicate display or show VGA monitor only. I'm now looking at an extended display with nothing but wallpaper. :(

do you know your laptop model? do you know if its an amd or intel griphics card? could be a hot key combination that will fix it right back up for you.

for example windows 8 and 10 the pushing the _____ windows key+P _____ can cycle though the options remember to wait a few sec in-between hitting it as it takes time to switch.

also because its a laptop you should be able to push the FN key then another key to swap though the modes but which key will depend on the laptop. usually it has a little monitor picture. just like changing the sound lvl by pushing the function key.
