Resetting Keyboard Shortcuts in GNOME 3

  1. Run dconf-editor.  You can do this by opening a terminal and typing "dconf-editor" and hitting enter, or by searching for an app called "dconf Editor".
  2. Navigate to: org -> gnome -> desktop -> wm -> keybindings.  You may see this written as "org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings", which means the same thing.
  3. Scroll through the list on the right.  Any settings in bold have been changed.
  4. For each changed setting, click first on the setting, so that it's highlighted, and then click "Set to Default".
  5. Rinse, lather, repeat.
  6. Once you are done with that, you should also check org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power, and org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys.

Thanks to this help page for pointing me in the correct direction!
