Windows 10: Where are the Excel 2016 Options saved on the drive?

    Where are the Excel 2016 Options saved on the drive?


    Hello ALL:
    I know where Excel 2016, and Word 2016 for that matter, saves the Ribbon and the Quick Access Toolbar. They are, of course in a file called Excel.officeUI or Word.officeUI. However, where are the other options saved like General, Save, Formulas, etc. ie: all the options OTHER than Ribbon or QAT.

    I am using 64 bit Windows 10 Pro and 64 bit Office 2016 Pro.

    The open/save is defaulting to the users profile in documents. Check C:\users\profilename\appdata for the rest of the office settings.

    the appdata folder his hidden. If you type it out in the address bar in explorer it will take you there or you can go to the view options and show all files and folders to see it. C:\users\dave\appdata
