Toad for Oracle keep prompting “No root element found in xml”

To fix this problem, do this step
– Quit from Toad
– Delete or rename the file desktops.xml (probably corrupt), located by default in C:\Program Files\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\User Files.
– Open Toad (any custom desktop setting will lose)
