    As far as I can see Fiddler stores its settings, scripts and captures in a folder in the C:\User directory.

    Now assume I installed Fiddler v5 in a folder like


    How can I tell Fiddler to store the settings in the future in a subfolder like


    or in a completely different folder like:


    I did not found a corresponding option in Fiddler to  re-define this setting folder.
    How does this work?

    There is no option for this in the UI. However, it is configurable though the registry. Go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Fiddler2" and create new string value with name "UserPath". For the value set the full path to the folder where Fiddler should keep its configuration files, e.g. "D:\tools\projecttest\Fiddlersettings".
