Issue Details

I changed my TestStand UI and windows position by drag and drop the windows. I want to reset them to the default arrangement.

How can I reset the TestStand UI?


You could reset your TestStand UI at the menu tab by selecting below. 

View » Reset UI Configuration...

Additional Information

Resets to a default configuration all modifications previously made to menus, toolbars, and the docking state of panes. The Reset UI Configuration command loads the configuration you specify when you enable the Automatically Load Configuration at Startup setting on the UI Configuration tab of the Sequence Editor Options dialog box, otherwise, the Reset UI Configuration command loads the default Small Screen Example or Large Screen Example configuration depending on the screen resolution. TestStand considers a 1280 x 1024 minimum screen resolution as a large screen.

TestStand 2020 includes several updates to UI, because of this putting a layout file from in older version of TestStand in the TestStand 2020 Local Application Data directory can cause the UI to appear different than expected. Use the steps above to reset the UI configuration to resolve this.
