Where you need to paste the path is the same as mentioned above when you are looking for the Save file location.

The default format of the Config file, as you can see in the above snapshot, is .xml. But for some reason, if there is a need for you to edit the file, then you can do that by opening it with Notepad or Wordpad.

Note: Although the Config file is editable, we strongly suggest that you don’t try to edit it, unless of course you are familiar with the Config file coding and are absolutely confident that whatever changes you do will not cause the game to break.
