Reset defaults from customize window. Or rebuild Built-in folder as described below. 

Before doing this close make sure TurboCAD is closed.

On Windows 7 go to Start Menu-->All Programs-->Accessories-->Run and type in %appdata% then click ok.

On Win 8 or 10 right click on the Windows icon in the lower left and corner of the desktop, choose run and then type in %appdata% then click ok.

This will open up the AppData\Roaming folder. Navigate to this folder C:\Users\Your PC User Name\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD version?\Product-name? x64\Profiles
There you will see a folder called “Built-In”. Right click on this folder and choose rename. Call it anything other than built in. Once it’s renamed reopen TurboCAD.

This will reset the defaults of the program including any customized toolbars and menus. If you have customized your interface at all and failed to save the configuration you will need to redo your personal setup. If you mainly just stick to the default controls you’ll be good to go.

If all you want to do is get the default key assignments back and not loose all of your custom interface, follow Kphool's instructions to rename C:\Users\Your PC User Name\AppData\Roaming\IMSIDesign\TurboCAD version?\Product-name? x64\Profiles\Built-in, restart TC and then copy desktop20.ist from the new Built-in folder (seems to have all the default key assignments in it) to your original [renamed]Built-in folder, delete the new Built-in folder, and rename your [renamed]Built-in folder Built-in.

This isn't a fix but I have found with Version 2016 if you close the drawing first then close Tcad the shortcut keys don't disappear.
