Re: [Gimp-user] Factory settings/reset to defaults

* Taisheena <forums gimpusers com> [10-30-15 08:51]:
I'm not sure but I suspect if you terminate GIMP, take a copy of
Users\<user name>\.gimp-2.8 (just in case things go wrong) and then
delete the contents of that folder. Then when you restart GIMP
(hopefully) it should recreate the contents of .gimp-2.8 using the
default settings. If it all goes wrong termiate GIMP and restore the
original contents of the folder.

Note that you would have to transfer and scripts, plug-ins, brushes
etc that you had installed from the back-up folder to the newly
created folder (when GIMP isn't running)

I actually uninstalled the program, went in program  files and deleted that
whole folder - is there some other place that GIMP saves settings to?

  look of any directory with a name containing "gimp" (remove quotes).
