Ever have the people you work with (or confess, perhaps even you, yourself) soooooo modify the Revit ribbon and Quick Access Toolbar that they/you don't know what the default display layout is anymore but would very much like to return to it? This is for you!
Resetting the Revit 2010 Ribbon and Quick Access Toolbar
- Close Revit
- Navigate to one of the following locations depending upon your operating system:
C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Network Login Name>\Local Settings\ApplicationData\Autodesk\Revit\
For Windows Vista:
C:\Users\<Your Network Login Name>\Autodesk\Revit
3. Once down in the ...\Revit folder, double-click on the Revit product folder (if you have more than one installed on your system) for which you wish to reset the ribbon and Quick Access Toolbar.
4. Delete the file named UIState.dat.
The next time you open Revit a new UIState.dat file will be created in the same folder with the default settings for the ribbon and Quick Access Toolbar.
Can't see the folder paths described above? Your company may store your user files in a non-standard location, or your user files may be hidden. Contact your IT/BIM/CAD Administrator for assistance in locating and removing the UIState.dat file.
