Reset UI settings

After multiple version and /or upgrades/incorrect shutdowns, DBeaver UI may become corrupted. You could experience glitches such as extra toolbar elements might appear, menu items might go missing, keyboard shortcuts and localization strings could be broken, etc.

To reset DBeaver UI just delete the file workbench.xmi in DBeaver workspace/.metadata. By default workbench.xmi file locations is:

  • Windows: %APPDATA%\DBeaverData\workspace6\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.e4.workbench\workbench.xmi
  • MacOS: ~/Library/DBeaverData/workspace6/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.e4.workbench/workbench.xmi
  • Linux: $XDG_DATA_HOME/DBeaverData/workspace6/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.e4.workbench/workbench.xmi

To reset the settings:

  1. Close DBeaver
  2. Delete workbench.xmi from Explorer/Finder or open terminal and run del (Windows) or rm (Linux/MacOS) followed by workbench.xmi path.
  3. Start DBeaver
