Skill Level: Absolute Beginner using PSP
This is Lesson 02 of a series of tutorials for the absolute beginner with PSP.
It is recommended that you complete the tutorials in numerical order, as each new one will build on the knowledge gained by the previous tutorials

This tutorial is my own creation, any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental


Paint Shop Pro - I used X2
Free 30 day trial from Corel, available here

If you have another PSP version and do not understand the screen shots, email me and I will try to help you, I have several PSP versions from PSP 8 (the old Jasc version) to PSP 2020.

If all is well with your PSP and you can follow the screen shots and instructions, there is NO need for you to reset the workspace.

Corel in its wisdom decided to remove the ability to reset the workspace to default with some PSP versions, e.g. PSP X6.
If you can not reset your workspace in your PSP version, I suggest that you save it before you do anything else, so you can return to it at any time in the future.
File > Workspace > Save

Do some things seem to be in a different in PSP when you open the program?

Resetting Workspace

File > Workspace > Load


Do you wish to save the current workspace = No
You would only click yes, if you made changes you want to keep


Click on the default for the PSP version you are using and click "Load"


This will reset the workspace to how it was when you first loaded the program.


Are the Shortcuts not working?

View > Customize


Keyboard tab > Reset All


Click on "yes"
