Reset keyboard shortcuts in GNOME

Recently we had a Korora user ask how to reset the keybindings in GNOME, which they had changed.

I don’t think that the shortcuts program has a way to reset them, but you can use dconf-editor.

Open the dconf-editor program and browse to:

org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings

Anything that’s been modified should be in bold font. Select it then down the bottom on the right click the “Set to Default” button.

Hope that helps!

    Will post about this and link back. It was helpful to me.

    Crappy shortcut table, not only uses too many combinations for weird operations also makes restoring a default complicated. And the defaults are stored somewhere, as the dconf editor shows.
