It's the same as deleting xnview.ini, is it really needed?

it's not high priority, but still useful without using the windows Explorer

But definitelly with confirmation dialog, or/and removed options could be saved to file, e.g. xnview.ini.bak. Otherwise, when new user change all settings and he wants to check also this one (bad translation or bad english), he could lost all settings!

Exactly. Such a feature might be convenient, but also some potential "danger" for novice users.
