    Hey Guys,

    I have myself a problem, basically was using 2 screens on my PC and set the texture browser window to appear on the other screen, now I have gone back to just the one screen but I forgot to put the browser back onto the main screen before disconnecting the second screen.

    Is there a way to restore the default window location for the browser and get it back on the screen cos Hammer still thinks there's another screen D:

    Thanks In Advance ;)

    Reconnect the second screen and move all the windows back, disconnect the second screen. Unless of course you no longer have the second screen?
    I know you asked me before but since we last spoke I thought about it more and realised you could just plug the other screen back in.

    Did'nt managed to get another monitor to try in the end so went straight to the registry and done the following:

    Following this procedure will reset all Hammer preferences. Game Configurations will be left intact and can be reset separately.

    To use RegEdit to reset Hammer preferences:

    1. Close the Hammer editor if it's currently running.
    2. From the Start Menu, choose Run... .
    3. Type regedit and click OK.
    4. Scroll to the top of the tree list on the left.
    5. Expand the tree to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Hammer.
    6. Back up the current Hammer settings by right-clicking the Hammer folder icon and click Export.
    7. Type a filename (eg. hammer_settings.reg) and save it to your desktop.
    8. Right-click the Hammer folder icon and select Delete.
    9. Click Yes to confirm the deletion.
    10. Close Regedit and launch Hammer and the settings will be reset.

    Note: Check to see if there is any problems with the Hammer interface before deleting the settings backup file from the desktop. If you wish to restore the old settings from the backup file, simply double-click the file on the desktop and import the settings back in.

    All Sorted Now Anyways :thumbup1:

    Even simpler

    Had a similar situation - went to the registry and there was a subfolder for the texture browser. I deleted just that subfolder and it worked like a charm!
