Being a newbie I wonder if there is a way to reset Wing IDE to its original state. Learning about all the possible settings means that I find myself in a cul-de-sac from time to time and I don't know how to get things to work as expected. It would be wonderful if there were a "magic button" that could take me nack to square 0. I'm using Wing Pro, version 6.0.9-1.

It seems that the Factory Defaults button resets user preferences. What i meant was a possibility to reset all the intricate settings that influence a debug session (i.e., make things to behave in a weird way) and are hard to find a root of. But perhaps it's too much to hope for.

For that, you can just create a new project.  Or, in Wing 101 or if you want to keep using the default project you can remove the default.wpr and default.wpu file from the user settings directory (listed 5th in Wing's About box) while Wing is not running.
