How to Backup Quicken Settings?

I'm getting ready to re-install Windows 10 and would like to avoid having to manually set up Quicken again. Is there some way to backup and restore the Quicken SETTINGS (not my data files -- that's easy)? Perhaps just copy everything in:

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Quicken\config

? Or, perhaps everything in the directory above it?

    I copied everything from the

    C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Quicken

    folder and that seems to have worked just fine. I had to re-enter my Quicken ID, but that was to be expected.

    I think that's the only folder that contains Quicken user settings.

    Also C:\ProgramData\Quicken\Config

    It appears that only the file QUICKEN.INI in that folder contains user settings which might be affected.

    Hi @isonclubikin ,

    When you do a Manual Backup of your Quicken Data File, then restore the Manual Backup, all my settings are there.
