Maybe you don’t remember what you picked during your first launch of Visual Studio or what you last reset to.

Under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\Profile key, you’ll see the LastResetSettingsFile value. As previously mentioned, the code name for this feature was Profiles, hence the word Profile is used as the key.

Happy Programming! =)
