Revit 2010 Tech Tip - Resetting the Revit Architecture 2010 user interface

Published date: 2009-Apr-16
ID: TS1106327

Applies to:
Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2010

Issue

You would like to reset the Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2010 user interface (i.e. the Ribbon, Quick Access Toolbar, and Project Browser) back to the out-of-the-box version and remove any customization that has been applied.

Solution

Have us do it for you:
Download and run the following script on your computer:
Autodesk Revit Architecture UI Reset.vbs (vbs - 6Kb)
Warning! This script may delete a file on your computer. It also removes a Windows Registry key. Do not use it without consulting your system administrator first.
Do It Yourself:
To reset the ribbon and Quick Access Toolbar:
  • Rename or delete the UIState.dat file located in the Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010 folder, which can be found in one of the following locations, depending on your operating system:

    Windows XP

    %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Autodesk\Revit\Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010

    Windows Vista


    %LOCALAPPDATA%\Autodesk\Revit\Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010
To reset your Project Browser to the default location:
  • Using the Windows Registry editor, rename the following registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\Revit\Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010\Components\Panels

Warning! Problems caused by improperly editing the Windows registry could render your computer operating system unusable. Microsoft provides a wealth of critical information that you need to know about the registry in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com/support.

Use the Microsoft® Registry Editor only at your own risk and only after backing up the registry as well as the system.dat and user.dat files as outlined for your operating system in the Microsoft Knowledge Base and in the related solution, TS66513. Additional information about the registry is also contained in the Help topics in the Microsoft Registry Editor.
