Ups! You didn't ask *where* to store the preferences.

About the "how":

- static application settings can be stored in the
   so called "app.confg". This a XML file named after
   the executable:  foo.exe.config.

- user preferences can be stored to a file into a folder I
   mentioned above. You may use (XML) serialization for that:
