Save all settings to ini file

Recommended Posts

Save all settings to ini file ?

 

What does this mean, is it win ini file or cc's, and for what purpose ? Thanks for your help.

 

It think not having a User Manual wastes time and is boneheaded - the help forums are full of basics and duplication. Searches for 'save all settings to ini file' (topic title) gave no results and a search for 'ini file' (discussion) gave a topic that matched the word 'file' only :blink:

this is will save all of your settings in a CCleaner.ini instead of your registry. Mostly it's used by people like me who use CC as a portable (no install) application .

In case you haven't seen it John here is the beginners guide.

One of the reasons an ini file is useful taken from the guide..

 

Save all settings to INI file (This will save all the CCleaner settings to CCleaner.ini instead of the Registry)

 

Note: Saving to ini can be useful if your Windows account is limited and doesn't have access to the registry.

Hi John,

The option that you refer to is talking about what is called the CCleaner.ini file. It will be created and updated in your C:\Program Files\CCleaner folder.

Edit This link should help you understand how useful it is.
