I have been using a Gnome as my desktop environment for a year now. And over the year I have been playing with various themes, icon packs, file explorer settings. It has reached a point where some of these tweaked settings started acting out where I could not even able to change the color of the file system. That's when I decided to basically do a factory reset of the whole Gnome desktop environments. And here is how to do it with once single command:

dconf reset -f /org/gnome/

That's it. This will bring back Gnome to it's original settings and look.
