I have enter a test value for color.

this is what I did.

 public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            this.BackColor = Properties.Settings.Default.myColor;
        }


 private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            colorDialog1.ShowDialog();
            Properties.Settings.Default.myColor = colorDialog1.Color;
            Properties.Settings.Default.Save();
        }

when I close the application and rerun it the color that was picked is correct. However when I look at the setting.settings the color still shows the default color which I pick at first which was blue.

I have 2 questions:
1. where does the setting for the new color get saved at?
I looked at the exe.config and I see the blue color that I picked in the setup of the application. I do not see the new color that is coming up.

2. what does the synchronize button do when pressed. Everything I press it I get a messagebox that states :

No user.config files were found in any of the following locations:

this works for me, and persists the color when the app is shutdown and restarted

    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            panel1.BackColor = Settings1.Default.MyColor;
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            ColorDialog nc = new ColorDialog();
            if (nc.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
            {
                this.button1.BackColor = nc.Color;
                Settings1.Default.MyColor = nc.Color;
                Settings1.Default.Save();
                panel1.BackColor = Settings1.Default.MyColor;
            }
        }
    }
