The recommended method for restoring the default menus in WindowMaker is to go to View -> Restore Layout. However, you may run into situations where even the View menu has been disabled. Another method, in WindowMaker, is to press Alt + V on the keyboard and select Restore Layout. As a final solution, there is a way to manually enable the menu defaults in the Registry.

  • Make sure you are exited out of WindowMaker and WindowViewer.
  • Launch the Registry by going to Start -> Run -> regedit.


  • Browse to the following directory: Hkey_current_user\software\wonderware\windowmaker\intouch-windowmaker
  • Delete the keys shown in the image below (every folder starting with "Tool"), exit out of the Registry and restart WindowMaker. The default menus should be reset.
