As I'm sure you know, some apps have a Revert command (often in the same menu as their Save and Open commands), which generally means "Revert to last Saved version" and which can be handy -- but of course this applies only to documents, not the app itself; and it can be dangerous in the case of apps that periodically do auto-Saves on docs without visible indication to the user. It's always surprised me, frankly, that Mathematica doesn't have a built-in "Clean Slate" facility for its kernel that would be equivalent to executing a "Quit Kernel, then Restart Kernel" command (although there was a third party (?) command or utility with this name in some earlier version, was there not?). Must be somehow hard to do this?
