I am writing a small Windows Application, and I want to store some settings.

How do I interface with the Windows Registry in C#?

Where is the correct place to store settings for my application?

This app will be in Windows 8.1 or better.

Thank you,

Tom

with .net you would use class System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager for storing app configuration data to the registry. see
