    User settings locations

    by janine1marchese ·

    Was asked on a meeting today where (the h…) stuff like Outlook reply auto fill is stored, to move over to O365 when upgrading.

    As I recall it used to be in a file in the Outlook home folders autocomplete.dat but apparently not anymore?

    Also, if you know how Windows stores Explorer quick links:

    As in: When you right-click on a program, you get a list of pinned folders and recently visited folders (resp. files that can be opened with that program). They are still there, even if you have deleted the shortcuts from the recent-folder. Where are these lists of files stored?

    Also the Recent files lists must be stored somehow?

      Depending on your platform, the user settings file is located here: Windows %APPDATA%CodeUsersettings.json; macOS $HOME/Library/Application Support/Code/User/settings.json; Linux $HOME/.config/Code/User/settings.json; The workspace settings file is located under the .vscode folder in your root folder.

      Oulook is a pain from 2016

      Hi Janine
      Outlook is, as said here, handled already if the user is using O365, as it is stored in a hidden database in the mailbox since O2016

      But if you’re going from O2016 to O365, You can (sigh) use a third party program, MFCMAPI, to manually export and import autocomplete links..

      MS has a guide here, where they them selves recommend MFCMAPI
      https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/import-or-copy-the-auto-complete-list-to-another-computer-83558574-20dc-4c94-a531-25a42ec8e8f0

      QUICK links and recent files links, are as of (all Windows version AFTER) Win10 1607 stored in small “database” files.
      – With recent files links, there’s one “database” file for each executable file on the system!!! – yup, bad design.
      %CSIDL_APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\*

      But as you’re using USMTGUI anyway (still do right?), you will get both Quick links and Recent files links automatically.
      – In the event you don’t, make sure the user hasn’t logged in prior to the restore. Let USMT create the profile!
