Show in search.  If you don't check this people won't find you in search.

Show Favorites Landmarks: Fill out your favorites bar and check this.  You will get your favorites as a list of options on the login screen.
-
Logs: Check these to save your local chat and ims to your computer.  This gives you a record of who you talked to, what they told you, and any links or slurls they gave you.  Very convenient for remembering names, dates, and other details.
-
Location of logs: This location is hard to find.  On Windows the defaul is:
C:\Users\(Username)\AppData\Roaming\SecondLife
-
You should be able to copy the entire address from the listing on the screen.  Just click on it as you would any other text.
-
You can also change the location. I don't recommend that  because it will need to be changed after every upgrade.  Sometimes the setup programs will do it.  But don't count on it.  I suggest the following for Windows user:
-
For Set and Forget on Windows
  • Leave the location as is 
  • Let the folder collect data for a few days
  • Click start button
  • Open the folder with your user name
  • If you don't see the AppData folder:
  •    Click Organize
  •    Click Folder and search options
  •    Check: Show hidden folders or Show all folders 
  • Click Roaming
  • Click SecondLife
  • Find the folder with your user name
  • See if you recognize the contents of the folder.
  • Create a link to the folder
  • Put the link your SL folder and other useful places.
