µVISION: Reset View To Customer Defaults

Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:

  • Keil MDK 5.15 and newer


My µVision screen layout appears to be corrupted.

Reset View To Defaults, located at the Windows-tab of µVision, resets this layout to standard defaults.

But my personal settings get lost this way. Is there a way to reset the corrupted layout, but to keep my personal settings?


Yes, there is.

Follow these instructions to store your layout with your personal settings:

1. After configuring your layout to your needs, select Save All

2. At your project folder, rename the file projectname.uvguix.username to projectname.uvguix (i.e.: Blinky.uvguix.smith now is called Blinky.uvguix)

To restore this personal layout:

1. Close µVision, do not call Reset View To Defaults

2. Delete the file projectname.uvguix.username

3. Restart µVision

You will see your former layout in use.

Note: These settings are always project local settings.
