You just need to save it after you change it

My.Settings.ShortProductForm = False
My.Settings.Save()

You defined the scope (when you define the setting) as user, not as application.

Yes, you have to define as user not as application is you want to make changes on it.

"Scope indicates if the property is read-only. If the value is Application, the property is read-only; if the value is User, the property is read-write"
