It’s a straight forward process but not an obvious one.

  1. Paste /users/darkfeatures.action to your base url. eg http://localhost:8090/users/darkfeatures.action
  2. At the bottom, click on the remove link after simple.dashboard.disabled

There is another solution that will allow you to remove the entry on behalf of another user that involves running a SQL query against the database. Further info can be found here.
