      Why would you want to reset the preferences in Illustrator, you might ask? Well, sometimes there may be unexpected behaviors in illustrator and this might indicate a problem with the Preferences. A user may have made changes or lost panels or other settings and is unsure how to get them back. This could call for a reset of the preferences. There are a few ways to reset the preference; some of the ways might depend on the version of the illustrator there are a few that will work on any version.

      1. Using Keyboard Shortcut: press Ctrl + Alt + Shif when clicking the Illustrator icon on the desktop or opening it any other way. This will reset all the preferences to default when Illustrator opens.

      2. Delete or Rename the preferences file C:\Users\ “Your User Name”\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator “Your version” Settings\en_US\x64 (or something quite like it). When starting the program a new default set of settings will be generated.

      3. Click the Reset Preferences button in the program

      After you have closed Illustrator, go to the icon to open it, hold Ctrl + Alt + Shift, then click on the Illustrator Icon. This will reset all the preferences to default when Illustrator opens.
