    Just open it :) It's more or less self explaining - xml names are related to settings and other things.

    What do you want to achieve?

      The initial file is just a limited set of default generated settings. Once you start changing things in Excel that file grows and grows with more stored settings.

      I want to skip the trial and error and review a comprehensive list of what is possible, especially those things that don't show up on the initial file.

      I/my team is evaluating the most optimal user settings that we will ultimately deploy using a central 'gold' copy of the file. Where the gold copy will have all of the agreed upon preferences pre-populated.

    Wrong idea to centrally deploy a central 'gold' copy of the file.

    There are a lot of temporary things contained in this file including dialog forms positions and sizes (issues with different resolutions).

    Also there is no way to lock user from changing settings in this file.
