Export Preferences file for Recovery?

Is it possible to EXPORT the PREFERENCES file in anticipation of having to reinstall Blender?

My copy has become unresponsive to most mouse input, and I think perhaps a reinstall is in order.

With the version used, it would have been better . . . :thinking:

For Blender 2.82:
Save Preferences … (Edit menu> Preferences)


Possibly to completely reset …

The files startup.blend and userpref.blend are stored under linux under /home/userName/.config/blender/2.82/config
under windows C:\Users<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender<VersionNumber>\config.
and can therefore be easily secured.
