    There might be a window layout already saved but not every programmer/operator creates one. If yes, you could recall that. If no, you are out of luck.

    You can manipulate your windows however you want. Click view and then toggle the windows you want open. Organize them as you wish.
    Then you can save your layout when you get it the way you like it with "window layout"

      You need to delete the gbarstate.dat file.

      From the Help files


      This file contains the layouts of toolbars and dockable windows within the measurement routine (but not during execution).

      You cannot edit this file in a text editor.

      If you delete this file, PC-DMIS restores the default layout.

      File location: In the directory where you installed PC-DMIS.

        Just search "dat files" in the help - there is a full list of what they all do.

      You could also press "Reset User" in Settings Editor. This will reset user settings back to factory default.

        Reset User will wipe out ALL user customisations, not just the window layouts so may not be desirable in some cases (unless those settings are backed up).
