Ubuntu: restoring the applications settings


I am reinstalling Ubuntu with a separate home partition. I have been told that when I do this all the data in the home partition will not be harmed(when I use manual partitioning of course) and that all my "installed applications settings will remain". If I want to reset these settings to their default without removing my data. Thanks in advance.


Open your home directory and type Ctrl + H. This will display all the hidden files, which start with a . character. These contain your settings. If you delete all of them, while keeping your personal files intact, your settings will be reset.
