Resetting the Netbeans Userdir

'userdir' is the directory where NetBeans stores user configuration data such as window layouts, editor settings, menu and toolbar customizations and various module settings.

At times your IDEs userdir gets corrupted and this results in the IDE behaving weirdly like

1) In the New Project dialog, sometimes only a few of the categories are listed.
2) Your Project does not open properly, you get errors like "Project Folder Already exist" etc
3) You get an exception window on IDE startup etc.

To fix such issues, run the ide with a fresh userdir.[Read More]
