I just recently downloaded Anki and have been playing around with the system trying to create an “extra” field in the cloze card to mimic the layout I am seeing in many Anki tutorials. Unfortunately, I must have messed the system up and this window below pops up when I try to open Anki. I tried to delete anki and start afresh, but that didn’t work. Is there any way I could start from default again?
Anki was unable to open your collection file. If problems persist after restarting your computer, please use the Open Backup button in the profile manager.
