The in-app Settings menu exposes a myriad of configuration options that you can use to personalize FATpick. And these point-and-click controls are more than sufficient for the vast majority of users. There are, however, a number of "advanced" configuration options that are too complex or obscure to present within the application itself. These advanced options can be controlled and configured using environment variables or (equivalently) the
[env] section of an ini file.
