How do I reset my Unity configuration?
I'm just a newbie switching to ubuntu for a few day.
I accidentally turn off the unity interface in the ccsm (compiz something I don't know)
Now, my desktop don't have anything except my computer, home folder, and trash.
Many (or all) shortcut keys are disable.
I can only access the internet by going through folders in my computer.
And this place is my only last hope before I decide to reinstall it again.

If your desktop has an icon that says 'My Computer', you must be running Windows. If you have Ubuntu installed, reboot, and select it from the boot menu.
