Do keep in mind by doing so you are deleting user data and you need to login, redo your settings and potentially re-adjust your scenes and scene collections depending on the cloud recovery.

- Make sure Streamlabs OBS is closed and not running in the background in task manager.

- Navigate to `%appdata%` in Windows explorer.

- Rename `slobs-client` to `_slobs-client` found here.

- Start Streamlabs OBS and close it again (without logging in).

- Copy the folders `SceneCollections` from `_slobs-client` to `slobs-client`.
