The Tool presets window can be opened from the presets toolbar. The toolbar is by default hidden and can be displayed from the View menu.

The toolbar contains the user-made presets and two buttons for adding new preset and managing existing presets. The image above shows the management dialog. Left part of the window shows list of available presets. The right part displays properties of the selected preset.

The easiest way is to reset configuration of the whole application. Or you can try to add the selection tools back. Their names begin with SELECT_ followed by the name of the tool, for example SELECT_BRUSH. If you want to have them in a group put them in square brackets. For example [SELECT_BRUSH SELECT_RECTANGLE MAGICWAND]
