    Export/Import Photoshop preferences, plugins, etc.?

    I need to wipe my computer clean and reinstall windows.

    re-installing Photoshop is not a big deal, but I have several preferences, plugins, saved layer styles, actions, etc. That I do not want to loose and will not be retained.

    Is there a way I can back all this up, and so when i reinstall photoshop its the same as it is now?



    I also will want to do this with Dreamweaver, After Effects, and Illustrator.


    Thanks!

    You can save you user created sets (layer styles, brushes, actions, swatches, gradients, etc) in Preset Manager - you can access it from several tool palettes by opening the small arrow pull-down menu.
    And your preferences can be saved from the Keyboard Shortcut and Menus (ctrl+shift+alt+K) panel. Workspace files are stored in the "Documents and Settings" folder (in the application specific subfolder). And keyboard shortcut and menu customization files are stored in the "Program Files" folder (Adobe/etc). Just copy them from there and apply after the reinstall.
