The Problem

There is no Audacity GUI available way for a user to save/restore their carefully created Audacity settings for Toolbars and Prefences, their Audacity environment(s).

The only workaround available is for the user to save the audacity.cfg file somewhere on the their file structure. Then subsequently copy this saved audacity.cfg back into the ...\Appdata\Roaming\Audacity folder (Windows file structure, similar exists on macOS and Linux). This may be deemed a little too technical, too inaccessible to many of our users.

This recent Forum posting was the trigger for this proposal.
