:idea: Your current preferences are stored in a platform-dependent manner (e.g. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Prefs on Windows; data/settings.properties if portable, ~/Library/Preferences on macOS; ~/.java/.userPrefs on Debian Linux; etc) and a backup of your settings is exported as preferences.backup.xml into the application data folder every 30 days.
