Does anyone know if it is possible to work with more than one user configuration file in c#. I would like to implement a method "save as" and "load" where the user can store his program settings.

I know how to save the settings with the default mechanisms. I need a way to copy them into a new file during runtime. I also need a way to restore a saved configuration set during runtime.
