How to backup or move Delphi IDE Desktops

Published on Friday, October 15th, 2010 by Maurizio Mutti

The problem

Each time you upgrade to a new BDS version or just install a brand new developping machine, you have to setup again the IDE windows visibility and positions.


The solution

The IDE saves his desktop settings on the file system, this files have the .dst extension.
As far as I tried, they are compatible beetween different version of Delphi, at least from 2007 up to XE so it is enought to copy them on the right location.
The files can be found on the followin locations:

  • Delphi 2007:


  • Delphi XE:
