Resetting PaintShop Pro To Default Configuration

In certain circumstances, if PaintShop Pro fails to operate normally, there may be a possibility of either workspace or database corruption. Here are some ways to fix corruption in either one of those areas.

Important -- If you have made any customization, be sure to save your workspace prior to resetting.

Resetting Workspace


Resetting the Workspace in PaintShop Pro is handy when certain tools or features are missing which need to be retrieved. The following steps will show you how to do this.

Option 1

Open PaintShop Pro
Click on the File menu
Click on Preferences in the drop down list
Click on Reset Preferences
Add a check-mark to these options
Reset Workspace to Default Configuration
Delete all cache files (Active caches rebuilt on restart)
Click the OK button


Option 2


Hold down the SHIFT button on the keyboard
Still holding down the SHIFT button, use the mouse and double left click on the PaintShop Pro Desktop icon
