Warning: This page is for advanced users only. Even for advanced users, this page is designed to help you view your configuration files, not to edit them. Modifying configuration files is not recommended in any circumstances.

Instead of storing it settings in the registry, Logos creates a variety configuration files in your Logos folder. This pages explains what the various configuration files are for. Modifying configuration files is absolutely not a good idea. Don’t attempt it!
