SuperX has a modular desktop interface (The KDE Plasma 5 desktop) that is very customisation with widgets and every user can customise the interface too his her choice.

However at times, we find that new users while experimenting with the new OS, manages to break the desktop in a manner that may not be easy for a new user to fix.

To address this issue, here we put forward some simple steps that can be used to reset the desktop to its original layout.
