is there any alternative way to backup windows 10's app settings and settings app settings? only options i've found is using a ms account which i don't want to do as i prefer an offline profile and i don't want to use onedrive either. i've already got my folder view settings backed up, but am finding it annoying to have to go through the settings app everytime i reinstall windows. i've done a search and could only find an old app someone made for w8 that backed up app settings but not system settings. is a ms account and onedrive the only ways to save w10 settings? this has been bothering me since i switched to w8 and then 10. i'd also like to know if it's possible to backup edges settings too as i backup the folder @ C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Packages but only restores favourites, not settings which is also annoying. ah...think i might of found a way to backup edges settings.. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge i can see my homepage and settings are stored there, i'll have to try this out on vmware in a bit to see if it works.
