Use case: When users bump into issues with MuseScore which they can't seem to fix, one of the typical reactions is to uninstall MuseScore and install it again. This action is driven by the idea that MuseScore would be reverted to factory settings. But uninstalling MuseScore does not wipe out the preferences/settings, so to their surprise if the problem is linked to the settings/preferences, it will still be there. One of these common issue is the disappeared not input toolbar:


Another concrete case which came in via email to support the need for this:

"This past weekend, I did have a major problem with the app - it became corrupted. The play panel could not be made visible, and it could not be reinstalled using a normal install procedure, without the bug showing up in the newly installed application. I don't know what caused the first application to become corrupted, but reinstalling was no simple task. I've outlined the steps I went through, in the attached document."
