Not sure what you mean by the layers are mirrored. There is a tool that will mirror vectors but it works on selections not on layers.

To return the view to be non-tiled double click the header of the 2D or 3D window or click the maximise button (the middle one on the right) on the window header.

Which view? What are you pressing on the keyboard or clicking to do that or is it just doing it on it's own?

Try pressing Ctrl-Z to undo any changes. Might required multiple presses.

Then it will be the software that created the file that will be the issue if you haven't done anything to it.

How new are you to the software? Have you worked your way through the tutorials?

If not it might be worth doing that rather than diving in. It's not the sort of software you can learn by just jumping in without coming up against a lot of roadblocks.
