Subject: cfg file options

cfg file options

Hi All

I have been playing around with cfg files and have created one for listening to audio books and another for music and its great to have two really different groups of settings to take into account what I am looking for such as having shuffle on in the music and off in books etc etc. I have looked in the manual in the appendix that lays out all the various parameters that can be saved in the cfg file but cant see the availability of setting a start screen to be saved in the cfg file. I am of course referring to the option that can be found in

settings / general settings / system / start screen

I would like to set the start screen in the config file to settings so that it would save me a couple of button pushes to get to manage settings to switch between my two config files. I notice in both my config files that I have created that there is the following line at the bottom

start in screen: root

I thought this would be the place to set up what I am looking for but when I change this from root to settings my Nano still starts up in the regular start menu on the files option. Is that line what I am looking for or is that line used for something completely different. If settings is not the right thing to replace root with then could someone please let me know what I need to put in there. Ideally I would love it to start up in the manage settings options but if I can just get into settings I would be happy.

I hope that made sense to someone.
