Any way to restore "Host/Game Ports & Input" settings to default?

I'd like to reset everything in these two sections and remove any additions I've made, but I don't see anything like a "Reset to Defaults" button.

Any advice?

I thought AGA worked out rather well, actually. Who cares if it was slow? It looked GORGEOUS. And Paula was so ahead of its time that it was still valid in 1993, with 14-bit audio and everything.
