Where does Word store its preferences and settings?
Posted on 2009-05-19
I am trying to recover the personal settings and preferences of Word from an old HDD. However I do not remember where Word stores this file. I remember having to do this before and there was a file that stored all the settings such as default font size, the auto-complete dictionary, and many other preferences.
Also, the version of Office that I am trying to recover the file from is 2003 and the one that is now being used is 2007. Will there be any issues just copying the file over to keep the settings, or will anything in particular have to be done. Is this at all possible?
