    While playing around with the shortcut hotkeys in Maya, I managed to mess up with a lot of default settings. Anyone knows how to reset the keyboard shortcuts to factory defaults? Strangely, many of the settings which I have not touched have also changed !

    If its only the keyboard shortcuts that you want to reset, there is a Restore Defaults button (top right hand side of hotkeys editor). If you need to restore other preferences, delete the prefs folder. You can find the prefs folder in this location :

    • If Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\<>\My Documents\maya\ <>\en_US\prefs
    • If Vista: \Users\<>\Documents\maya\<>\en_US\prefs
    • If Mac OSX: /Users//Library/Preferences/Autodesk/maya/en_US/<>/prefs

    If you delete prefs folder, Maya will create a new fresh set of default prefs when you start Maya the next time.
