Common Problems

  • My in-game settings are not saved in WoW.
  • When I log out my custom game settings go back to default.

Corrupted World of Warcraft settings and permission problems may cause issue saving your in-game settings. Before troubleshooting, ensure that you are logging out of your character after changing settings. Disconnections and crashes will cause any changed settings to revert. If you still need help, follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue:

  1. Reset your user interface to make sure your files and addons are not corrupted.
  2. Log into the affected character, type this command into the in game chat box, and press enter. Safely log out of the character to ensure that the setting is saved.
    • /console synchronizeSettings 1
  3. Try creating a new administrator account to resolve permissions issues.
  4. Update or temporarily uninstall any security programs, which may mistakenly identify the login module as a security threat.
