I've been using vimperator and I want to change how copy and paste works, but I don't know where _vimperatorrc is - any help?

You could use a search engine like Everything to find it. –  Phoshi Jan 30 '10 at 21:54

This is a related message from mailing list. Shortly: you can place it in "C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]" for WinXP or "C:\Users\[user name]" for Vista and it should work. It is not created automatically so you'll probably need to create it by yourself. It is named exactly ".vimperatorrc": notice the starting dot and absence of file extension.

Actually you can't start files with a ., its an underscore. Thanks for the help though, its much appreciated! –  user4941 Jan 30 '10 at 23:50
It is possible with tools like Far... which I'm using all the time –  whitequark Jan 31 '10 at 0:17
You can use the good ole cmd prompt to rename something so that it starts with a dot. Cumbersome, I know, but it gets the job done. –  airstrike Nov 17 '14 at 22:59
