Is there a way to commit configuration changes from GUI on Cisco 1941 router?

I have a Cisco 1941 router.  I've recently changed the settings via the GUI and they work great.  Now I'd like to commit them to the device's NVRAM.  

How can I do this?  Is there an option available in the GUI?  If so, where?

What configuration program are you using?
Cisco Configuration Professional have in lower left part of screen utilities- write to startup configuration.

Thanks for your response, Davorin.  I'm attaching a screenshot of my web interface.  It looks like Configuration Professional Express.  I don't see the "Write to Startup Configuration" link there.  Some other pages say "Apply Changes," but I've tested them and they don't seem to be permanent.

Hi,

Cisco routers have two configurations:
- running-config - it is the configuration in router's memory and every configuration change you make (or in your case better say "apply") it is written to this config and is effective immediately. But it gets erased at every restart (or power on).
- startup-config - it is the configuration written to permanent memory. This configuration is written ro running-config at every router's start.
When you do a configuration changes, you first apply the change to running-config and if the router is still working as you have planned, you must save it to startup-config, to make the change permanent. It is a kind of "safety valve".
In CLI the changes are written to startup config with "copy running-config startup-config" command.
In your case with "apply" you make changes active (they are written to running-config). To make the changes permanent I guess you can use "Save" option at the top of the screen (near help option).
Some are reporting that Cisco Confoguration Professional Express prior to version 2.1.3 had a bug which didn't allowed to save  the config changes.
