On Windows XP the path to the GOogle app data is \Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default but I do not know where the settings for search engines are stored. The admin locked down the machine from sync-ing my Google account, but I want to keep my search engeines. What is the path for the search engines settings?

For Chromium, it is %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Profile 1\Web Data where

  • %USERPROFILE% is your home folder, and
  • Profile 1 varies according to the profile you use (by default, it is named Default).
