Is there a way to reset your shopify site completely?  I want to reset it as if I just got a brand new account.

There's no reset button, but you can do the following:

1) Re-apply a theme, any theme, from the Gallery page (under Assets). This will do away with the theme you have now. (I sure would download my theme before doing this, as backup. Seems extreme.)

2) Delete all your products

3) Delete all your collections

4) Delete extra link lists you've created

5) Delete all pages except About us and Frontpage.

6) Delete blog posts.

Visit your preferences pages and remove extra coding, etc.

You can also just sign up for a new account, that would give you a 30-day free trial with a blank slate. You won't be able to use the same myshopify domain in the other account though.

I have the same question.  I can't simply uninstall all products collections etc.  When I do that and start working again, my theme is still missing the Home and Catalog and Search pages.  It seems I need to reset EVERYTHING.  Or would it be simpler if I just cancel my Shopify account and in a few days open a new one?

I was struggling with this too and the best way I could fix it was to select a new theme (must publish it) then remove the one you wanted to reset. 

If you want to go back and use the same them that you just deleted then you would have to go through the same process again. The best thing about this is that my products did not get deleted. It was the quickest and simplest way I could come up with to fix my problem.
