 +===== Accessing Configuration Data =====
 +Settings stored in Xfconf can be accessed in numerous ways:
 +  * From within applications of Settings Manager. Most of the time, settings stored in Xfconf and configuration options presented in the GUI are tightly coupled. It means that any action of the GUI settings is automatically and immediately propagated to the configuration system and vice-versa. See also: [[xfce:​xfce4-settings:​xfsettingsd|Settings Daemon]].
 +  * From Command Line Interface (CLI) using [[xfconf-query|xfconf-query]].
 +  * From GUI. Settings, which are not exposed in configuration dialogs, can be browsed and manipulated using [[xfce:​xfce4-settings:​editor|Settings Editor]].
 +  * If everything else fails, settings can be edited manually. Xfconf stores all its data in [[xml-file-format|XML files]], which can be edited when Xfconf is not running. Be very careful when using this option, as it is easy to make the file unparseable or inconsistent.
