Restore a details template to the default configuration

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

The Details Templates Editor doesn't contain an Undo button, nor can you use a keyboard shortcut to undo an action. To undo an addition you made to the template, you must use the DELETE key. To undo a deletion, you must reapply the setting. You can also revert to the original settings by exiting the Details Templates Editor without saving your changes. If you want to undo changes after you have saved, you can restore the template. When you restore a template, all customization is lost, and the template is restored to its original configuration.

This topic explains how to use the Exchange 2013 Toolbox or the Exchange Management Shell to restore a details template to its default configuration.
