Behavioral protocols that use Solo typically have two kinds of variables. First, a lot of GUI parameters that control how the protocol runs (e.g., one of these might be how long a white noise sound to play in response to an incorrect trial). Second, a lot of variables that hold the data from a day's session, i.e., hold the outcome of running the protocol. We distinguish between these two, calling the first type of variables Settings and the second type of variables Data.

Protocol Settings

Saving settings.
If you've opened a protocol and you've set all the GUI variables to the values that you want for a subject, you can then save what is called a "Settings" file. You can do this by either (a) calling the function HandleParam/save_solouiparamvalues.m, which no one does; or (b) if your protocol uses the @saveload plugin, which every protocol in their right mind does, then you click the "save settings" button. This will create a file that holds the values of all GUIs in your protocol.
Loading settings.
