I have 2 machines. I've installed Notes R5 Client on the old machine and have all the settings configured. Now I have installed Notes R5 Client on the new machine. How can I have the same exact settings in the new machine as the old machine. The setting I meant was like the workspace, location setting, icons, etc...

Thanks in advance.

Copy the bookmarks.nsf and the names.nsf to your new location.
But be carefull that your have manager access to that database in both environments.

the solutions you all gave me do not keep the "Location" settings in the "Preferences --> Location Preferences". How do I go about that?

it keeps the settings in yout Location, Preferences ==< Location preferences.
But be sure that you copy the local names.nsf and not the server one.
