Common Problems

  • My in-game settings are not saved in WoW.

Corrupted World of Warcraft settings and permission problems may cause issue saving your in-game settings. 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 these commands, and press enter:
    • /console synchronizeConfig 1
    • /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.
