Resetting Desktop Settings and Preferences in Sage 200

Home | News & Updates | Sage Product Tip Of The Week | Resetting Desktop Settings and Preferences in Sage 200

Knowing how to reset your desktop settings and preferences in Sage 200 is extremely useful.

It means that if you ever lose the ability to see a column on a list view, a column within a screen or have any other issues in Sage, you can easily set it back to the default settings.

This Tip of the Week will go through exactly what you need to know and how to do it.

To start go to the Tools option (the cog icon) in the top right-hand corner of Sage 200.

From the subsequent drop down menu choose ‘Preferences’.

You can then choose the option to ‘Reset desktop settings’.

This removes any changes made to the desktop, for example, column choices, and resets the desktop back to the Default values.

Within the same preferences screen you can also:

Set the desktop theme

  • You can set the desktop theme to White, Light or Dark.

By default, Sage 200 opens with a Dark theme. If you change the theme, the change applies when you re-open Sage 200. Theme changes affect the view of the banner, menu and from backgrounds. They do not affect workspaces.

Set the line spacing for desktop lists

  • You can set the Spacing for desktop list rows to Narrow, Normal or Wide.

By default, Sage 200 opens with the Normal spacing. Spacing changes do not affect workspaces.

Hide notifications

  • To stop receiving Save and Delete notifications when you are working in Sage 200, select ‘Disable Save’ and ‘Delete Notifications’.

Note: This does not apply if you are using Excel Reporting from the Self Service web app.
