This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

There is no definitive answer, in the newer version of .Net they are stored in settings.settings files which are internal to the application.

They can also be stored in the registry.

They can also be stored at: C:/Users/Username/AppData/Local/Packages/Appname/Settings
