It's really useful when uninstalling nvda, can keep the user's setttings, because the user may wish install other version with same settings.
But in other cases, due to problems, we may wish remove the settings, because thenself is causing the problems.
Therefore, nvda should have an option to the user remove or not remove the nvda settings.

As far as i can tell there is only the one .ini file. However if this does become currupt or missing I notice nvda shoves up a box asking what to do, so maybe the user concerned can just set a batch file up to do a delete or comove of the ini file which then forces nvda to create a new one.

Replying to ragb:
An alternative would be to provide an option to revert to default
configuration in NVDA's preferences.
I Agree that this is the better alternative.
We have had users screw up their settings before, and being able to tell them to just reset to default, rather than having to go and delete would be nice and clean.
Comment 6 by jteh on 2012-07-25 08:02 9715eb7 provides an option to do this from within NVDA, either via the keyboard or the NVDA menu. Is that sufficient for the reporter or is something else desired?

I think they mean that when uninstalling NVDA itself, the uninstaller should ask the user as to whether they want to keep their existing settings, or have them removed as well. Obviously if the user wanted them removed, it'd probably just be easier to remove the entire %appdata%\nvda directory, and give a warning that all custom add-ons will be removed in addition to any custom configuration.

In my opinion, it's fixed.
This tycket is a request from the portuguese list to clean up the user Configurations when having problems with customizations.
Therefore, don't make senses create another option, as users can now do this simply reseting them to the factory defaults.
