Choose Settings to Export, Import and Export Settings Wizard

Use this page of the Import and Export Settings Wizard to specify some or all of your current settings to be exported to a file for use on other computers. You can access this wizard from the Tools menu by clicking Import and Export Settings.

  • Which settings do you want to export?
    Select to export all settings, or specify a sub-set of settings by category or category item.


    Settings that might contain identifying information about you or your computer are marked with a warning graphic. For example, a settings combination could specify a new default location where projects are saved, such as a network share accessible by others. These settings are not selected by default, but are automatically selected if you choose All Settings. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.
