Resetting your user preferences in Priority Matrix for Windows can be helpful if you want to restore the default settings or if you are experiencing issues with the current settings. Here are the steps to reset your user preferences:
- Close the app completely Before resetting your user preferences, make sure that you have closed the app completely. This means that the app should not be running in the background or in the system tray.
- Locate the settings file The next step is to locate the settings file that contains the current app settings. This file is called “pm-pro-config.ini” and is located in the following directory: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\PriorityMatrix\files (To navigate to this directory, you can type “%appdata%” in the file explorer.)
- Delete the settings file Once you have located the settings file, you can delete it. This will remove all the current app settings, including the window geometry and user preferences.
- Re-open Priority Matrix Finally, you can re-open Priority Matrix. When you launch the app, it will create a new settings file with the default settings. You can then customize the app settings according to your preferences.
Note: Resetting your user preferences will remove all the custom settings that you have configured in the app. This includes settings such as whether to mark items as complete or delete them without confirmation, and several others. If you want to keep these settings, you can back up the settings file before deleting it. Alternatively, you can try to edit the file with your own choices, but please be aware that this may break the app, so please back up the settings files before experimenting.
