Recently Mathematica broke on me and I had to reinstall. I lost all of the changes I've made in my Options Inspector over the past year and am attempting to go back and change them again by memory. It's somewhat frustrating. In the future I would like to avoid this.
I'd like to keep a copy of all option settings which I've changed from their default values. It would be great to have a list. There are a lot of options, so I would like this list to contain only the ones that have been changed from default. Is there a way to gather this information programmatically?
This would allow me to create a function that when executed will change all of these options at once so I'm back up and running quickly. It would be nice to see these options in a list to remind me of what I changed. Any ideas on how this would be done?
