Where are the settings and customisations for FarManager stored - I would like to be able to edit them in a text file and carry the program about with me on a USB stick?

1. Settings stored in %FARPROFILE%\generalconfig.db and other *.db (env-variable FARPROFILE is available in FAR's command line)
2. to get it in text form run far.exe /export (=> xml)
3. To load exported settings run far.exe /import

littleblackdog11, i would recommend just search for "Far Portable" other the internet.
There is a couple "all-in-one" portable-far based packages, let's say VictorVG, DjaFar,
and probably best choice is from guy A. Belenki (@abelenki).
("probably best" - not because other are bad, but here at least i got my hands into it a bit and got impressed)
On this site you may find a lot about far portability, but i still would suggest just take the one of i suggested.
buniak_a_h, am i wrong about ypou having too some far portable pack?

That was for version 1 or 2.
The point of that link was to illustrate that this topic is obviously created by a bot that copied this old message.
I'm renaming both topics to reflect FAR versions.
