I've messed up After Effects

New HomelandsNew Homelands1 Posts: 0Member
I'm hoping someone can help me with this, I've done something to mess up after effects. I've attached a picture of what my screen looks like when I open the program. As you can see, I don't even have the options to restore the viewing window to its default configuration.

I would really rather not have to reinstall the program from scratch. Does anyone have an idea how I can fix this and get the display back to its default configuration?

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Got it! Holding ctrl+alt+shft then opening after effects will prompt you to delete your preferences, did that and now everything is working.

    Awesome. I wish there were a way to dock/lock certain things in place like some other software.
