You can use the configuration tools to create and modify .NET Framework <appSettings> sections. Note that the <appSettings> sections must be included in a single file and not distributed across multiple files. Examples of files that you cannot edit include the Machine.config file and <appSettings> sections that include the optional file attribute that specifies a relative path to an external configuration file.

To configure an <appSettings> section

  1. Open the configuration file. For more information, see Configuring the Application Blocks.
  2. Add the Application Settings node to the App.config node.
  3. To add a setting, right-click the Application Settings node, click New Setting, and then set the name and value in the Properties pane.
