Windows 7: Where is my Office 2010 settings stored?

Where is my Office 2010 settings stored?

I have MS Office 2010 installed on my computer that's running on Windows 7.

I've justed uninstalled the 64 bit version of Office and replaced it with the 32 bit version. To my delight, the settings all all still intact.

That means that all my customizations are stored somewhere in my computer. Does anyone know where it is saved. Then I can easily backup my settings.

Look for ".pst" files on your win drive. I can't remember off the top of my head where they are. Do a file search and you will find them.

Here is where the 2007 settings were stored:
C:\Users\YOUR NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office.
Not sure though for 2010 because I do not have it.

Thanks. I've found this folder, but there are no .pst files inside.

.pst files are your Outlook data, not Office configuration...
