    What file or files does UO Classic Client use to keep individual chars screen information in? Screen info like spells that have been drag'd to the desktop, etc...

    For me in Windows 7 (I'll bet Vista is the same):

    C:\Users\"yourusername"\Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Legacy\User Data

    for me, using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, it is just a slightly different path than what covert lists ~

    C:\Users\"yourusername"\My Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Legacy\User Data\Account Name\ShardName\CharacterName\
    the file in that folder is called "desktop.uos"

    I have found that copying my preferred, character screen info file, "desktop.uos" - and placing it renamed as "desktop.nwb" here -
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Ultima Online Stygian Abyss Classic\desktop.nwb
    causes any NEW created characters I make - to begin with this, my preferred, "Chars screen information"
