This tip is more like a “tip” than her usual “micro functionality” daily tips. After you export, the final page of the wizard shows you the full file path. This page is just a read-only edit box that can take focus. In other words, you can put your cursor in it and copy the full file path.


After you export your settings, you may want to open the file and see what’s there, in case you want to make any tweaks. Otherwise, you’ll have to open the Import And Export Settings dialog box and go through the wizard to guess where you exported that file to.

Happy Programming! =)
