Windows 7: A Win 7 'Local Settings Manager'

MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
A Win 7 'Local Settings Manager'


I'm trying to manage my bandwidth allowance from my (mobile wireless broadband) ISP.

I want to use Adobe Flash Player but need to guard against unwanted bandwidth use through peer-assisted-networking.

I note the following on the Flash Player Help page: 'Beginning with Flash Player 10.3, the "Local Settings Manager" supersedes th(e) Online Settings Manager for managing global settings on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. "The Local Settings Manager" can be accessed in the Control Panel on Windows ...'

I can't find anything called a "Local Settings Manager" by searching Win 7/Control panel.

Anyone know the Win 7 title for this (obviously generic) term used on the Adobe page?

Hello ausgumbie.

I believe the Flash Player (32 or 64 bit depending on your Flash installation) entry (in your Windows Control Panel) is what they're referring to by "Local Settings Manager"; the context being that the settings are accessible from your computer locally now holds precedence over the ones they had you set on their online website sometime ago on the older versions of Flash.

Thanks Solarmystic

Found it. Yes, I think the reference must be to the FP panel rather than something in Win. I've changed the settings to suit me.

All the best
