Hi

I worked out how to load the value of a string setting to a text box
Me.TextBox1.Text = My.Settings.Setting_Path
How do I do the reverse
My.Settings.Setting_Path = Me.TextBox1.Text  does not work

What is the scope of the setting? Application scope settings are read only. Change the scope to User if you want to be able to change the setting.
