Ive somehow managed to screw up the SQL Developer looks.
I have managed to remove the list of saved connections on the left of the screen, the SQL worksheet and the output panes etc.

How do I reset it to the default settings?

Thanks

It is easy to screw up the windows - they are a very easy to put back (I'm guessing you are referring to the SQL server management studio)

No sorry - this is SQL Developer (an Oracle product) Still easy to screw up the windows though. At least Oracle and Microsoft are consistent there LOL

the "connections" pane => View => Connections

from your a connection, once you connected, you either get a worksheet by default, or you can explicitly open a new worksheet in the context menu

which version of SQL Developer do you have?
do you have the "View" menu?
 in that menu, you should have the "connections" item, click it.

otherwise, you may have activated the "auto-hide" of the pane, using the "minimize" button.
can you show a screenshot of your Sql Developer?

I'm away from my PC, but I think you're thinking of the "default" as your set of created connections plus which window(s) open automatically.  Otherwise, a full default suggests that the software be deinstalled, then reinstalled.

If there is another user with a similar set of connections defined, I've seen the list repopulated by exporting / importing the software registry settings.

Preferences for which tools to open should be found in your Options - again from memory.

Does this help?

Strong recommendation, deinstall the existing software; do not just overlay it.

within documents and settings/user/application data there is a sql developer folder. If you delete that then restart sql developer you get everything reset back to as it was
