If you delete the file and then use steam to "verify Cache", that should fix that up and replace it with the default file. either that, or delete the file, run the launcher, go and re-do your options and start the game.. it should automatically copy over the default skyrimprefs.ini file for you. (or do both, delete & verify cache, then run launcher, reset options, run game)

If you edited the default one in the /steamapps/ folder.. just delete and verify cache, steam will re-download the original.

How do i verify cache?

 

Log on to Steam.

On your steam game list right click "The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim".
Click properties.
Choose the "Local Files" tab.
Click Verify Integrity of Game Cache.

Just seen gophersvids on youtube mention that once you've cleaned dirty edits with TES5EDIT and then verify cache it will undo the cleans. Not great to have to redo it all again. Is there no original .ini to download somewhere?

You have defaults in your steamapps/common/skyrim folder.

It is smart to make a copy of your .ini files and put them somewhere outside of the skyrim folders, in case you ever need to rewrite.

It should work if you just delete the file in your My Games\Skyrim folder and then open the launcher.
