That's correct. I said in my message something about if you haven't shut down NVDA for that reason. Its also a reason that I strongly believe that the default setting should be changed. By default, NVDA saves settings when you shut it down, which would mean when you restart or shut down Windows as instances. You can turn this behavior off and manually save settings when you want to with Control+NVDA+c.

Because of this NVDA default behavior, I have twice lost every single one of my settings. I had reverted to factory settings to check something, then I had forgotten that the factory settings would be automatically saved if I shut NVDA down. When I rebooted again, I had lost all my settings and I had to manually reset them.
This should not be the default behavior.

Pressing NVDA-ctrl-R isn't always a guarantee that you'll be able to revert back to a previous setting as a user could have saved a configuration, exited and then later restarted NVDA. In that case relying on the keystroke to revert to the previously saved configuration won't work.

Subject: Re: [nvda] NVDA announcing shortcut keys
Thanks this is the correct place to disable shortcut keys. I don't know what keystroke I accidently hit to mess up my settings. I will remember the insert control r for the next time these old stiff fingers hit the wrong keys.

I haven't played with the setting to see if this is the applicable
one, but it appears to be in object presentation, report object shortcut keys.
Even if that is the applicable setting, you can see why using
control+NVDA+r is so much more convenient and efficient.
