I tried about 20 times to hit the ctrl-alt-shift combo while photoshop is starting but I can't get get the reset settings dialog. Is there a user-friendly way to do this?
I'm dismayed to see there's no answer to your question as I have the same problem. Why isn't there a preference setting or option to manually reset settings? The ctrl+alt+shift on my Windows machine has never worked with Photoshop CC.
