    In this case, if you click where the "X" used to be, the emulator will recognize the command for the "X" button

    Click "Reset" on the left side of the window
    .
    This will reset the controls back to the default setting. "Reset" will not, however, make buttons reappear. If you have unchecked boxes in "Visibility", you will need to reenter that area to check them again. Set these options according to your preference, and then enjoy a game.
