How to Reset MMC Console View Settings to Default in Windows

information   Information
Once a column sort order has been applied in a Microsoft Management Console there is unfortunately no way inside the MMC console to remove column sort orders to revert to the default unsorted view.

The only way to restore the default view is to remove the customization file for the MMC snap-in that is causing the issue.

This tutorial explains how to reset your Microsoft management console settings to the defaults. These are the preferences such as the view settings, and what can be customized like the console tree being shown or not, etc.

Here's How:

1. The MMC snap-in preferences files are located in the folder below. You can copy and paste the path below into the Start menu search bar (or address bar in a file explorer window), and press Enter. It will bring up the correct folder.
2. Close all MMC consoles running. Task scheduler, computer management, etc.

3. Rename the snap-in preference file by adding a suffix like .old at the end.
