Choose Settings to Import, Import and Export Settings Wizard

Use this page of the Import and Export Settings Wizard to specify the settings collection you intend to import. You can access this wizard from the Tools menu by clicking Import and Export Settings.

  • Which settings do you want to import?
    Select a collection from the list, or click Browse to locate a different collection to import.


    Settings that might contain identifying information about the creator of the settings collection or that person's 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.
