Hi, first see this wiki page to find the Second Life user_settings folder on your system.

Quit the viewer before you try to do this.

Inside the SecondLife/user_settings folder, look for settings.xml [ the .xml extension could be hidden on your operating system ] and delete it.

If you use the beta viewer, the file will be called settings_betaviewer.xml and so on for different special viewers.

If you use a third party viewer, it could have a special name like that under SecondLife/user_settings or be in a whole different directory, check with your TPV supplier.

 

So, once you delete that settings file, all your preferences will be returned to the factory defaults, and that includes things you set in the debug menu.

Revisiting this issue and what I've learned in the years since, there's apparently still not an easy way to restore debug settings to default within the SL Viewer. Since it's a rather geeky-techy thing that delves into a lot of unsupported features, it hasn't gotten a higher priority. I recommend backing up settings.xml before you tweak a bunch of debug settings. I do this on both Mac and Windows by right-clicking the file and creating a compressed .zip archive that can easily be expanded. Or if you have an automated solution like Time Machine (I use Genie Timeline Pro on Windows but it isn't nearly as nice), you can do a backup right there — knowing you have the safety of always "bouncing back" to your earlier settings.

Otherwise, if you're comfortable using a text editor, you can open settings.xml and delete custom values. I think in most cases, values only appear in there if they've been changed from the defaults, whether they're settings in Preferences or the more under-the-hood Debug Settings. But if you're not that selective, do what Cerise said.
